Personalized Fun Food

Tacos are fun anytime and the best part about them is that everyone can personalize their own! So if you’re cooking a dinner for one, two or a whole entire family you can double or even triple the recipe and choose the ingredients you like best. 

If you’re more of a crispy taco shell fan, simply swap out the soft flour tortillas for crispy flour or corn tortillas of choice. You can also crisp up your own tortillas over the stove with a drop of cooking oil if desired. If you’re a taco lover but eating a Gluten Free diet, turn your taco into a Taco Bowl with Quinoa.

If you want to make your tacos vegetarian, use tofu or your favorite cooked beans instead of ground beef or simply omit the beef altogether.

Rice in Tacos

If you haven’t tried adding rice to your tacos, you’re missing out! The rice adds a hearty and fluffy texture that makes your meal that much more balanced. If you’re worried that will add to the overall cooking time, no worries. Simply use Success® White Rice which cooks up in 10 minutes and it’s Non-GMO Project Verified, made without preservatives or additives!

To give your rice a bit more flavor, cook the grains in chicken, beef or vegetable broth or season the cooking water with taco seasonings.
