Tacos are one of my favorite meals. In fact, I could eat them almost daily.

If you're still using the packet mix to make your tacos, you'll stop after trying this recipe!

These ingredients can easily be found in your pantry and you'll save money too. It's that easy.

I usually use ground beef for my tacos, but I got a great deal on ground chicken, so I decided to try that instead. 

These turned out to be just as good as the ground beef version and more healthy for you too!

I love to eat mine in a taco salad, and the next day, heat some leftover Spanish rice with the chicken and sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese on top. Then scoop it up with some tortilla chips! Yum!

It's good for more than one meal and it's very budget friendly! 

The kids love them and you could even pack a taco salad for their school lunch the next day! 

The possibilities are endless!
