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

These kid taco bowls are essentially mini tacos served in Scoops tortilla chips. Perfect! I mean, who wouldn’t love to eat mini, bite-sized taco bowls?!? These little bowls are not only perfect for little kids, but they would be perfect for finger-food appetizers at a party!

My 3 year old daughter loved these and amazingly ate 4 of these little tacos! My 1 year old son, on the other hand, dumped the insides out and ate everything separately. Which was fine by me…as long as they are eating!

I used ground deer meat and seasoned it just like I do with beef (however, in the recipe, I’ll suggest ground beef as that is what most people will have on hand). I then added the meat to the shells and topped them with tomatoes and cheese, with a side of rice.
