Kid Taco Bowls

A long time ago (aka probably 2 months ago….which seems like eternity to me) my friend Stephanie mentioned to me that her mom suggested serving her kiddos tacos in tortilla bowl chips. Her son is a picky eater like my kiddos so I figured that if she had luck with this than my chances were pretty high.

Little Finch loved it and amazingly ate 4 of these little cuties! Laughing Coyote on the other hand, dumped the insides out and ate everything separately. Which was fine by me.

I used ground deer meat and seasoned it just like I do with beef and then added it to the shells and topped them with tomatoes and cheese and a side of rice. So easy and a really fun way to eat tacos. I actually think that these would be GREAT for parties! Make a bunch of these and serve, it is such a “less messy” way of eating one of our favorites, tacos!!

  1. I love this idea. If you were having a little Mexican party or maybe serving chili, these would be a great app or side. Pinning these.

    1. Thanks Brittany! My kiddos definitely loved them! There are so many different varieties that you could make with the little scoop bowls! Thanks for stopping by!!
