Friday's Kid-Tested Recipe: Turkey Taco Salads

I hate sneaking food into my children's diets, so I thought I would share some of the recipes that I make with my kids (ages 4 &2)! When kids help cook, they rarely avoid the food because they helped to make it! I'll try to note steps that even the youngest children can help with in the kitchen!

What you'll need to make it!
1lb of ground turkey (you could use ground beef or chicken as well), browned in a skillet and prepared with Taco seasoning mix (we like Old El Paso in Medium)
Lettuce shreds
Shredded Cheese
Various taco toppings: tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc.
Tortilla chips

How to make it!
This is a great weeknight meal! You can even prep the taco meat (browned turkey prepared as directed on the taco seasoning packet) ahead of time and reheat. Layer shredded lettuce, taco meat, and cheese on a plate and top with various taco toppings. Serve with tortilla chips!

Kids are great at layering their toppings and helping serve these taco salads!

Have a great recipe or a food/cooking blog? Feel free to link up now or send me an e-mail! I am going to start featuring recipes of others every friday...I just haven't gotten my act together yet! I'd love it if you'd grab the button, but it's not a requirement to join in!

Hi, I'm now a new follower. I love this idea as my 2 year old has become one picky eater (lives on crakers it seems) I'm not a big kitchen person but cannot wait to see good ideas for her that I can use!
