“Its Taco Tuesssdayyy!!” Hearing Lebron say that every Tuesday would get me so hyped for tacos! We love mexican food in my house but since we aren’t able to just pack the kids up and head to our favorite mexican spot for tacos now, I decided to bring the tacos to us, but with a twist! Normally I’d make the usual taco bar but being that we’ll be eating at home for a while I wanted to get creative with our family Taco Tuesday. So I hooked up some taco egg rolls! This recipe is so easy and so delicious! Honestly, I doubt you’ll ever want to eat regular taco shells again after trying these! I love my egg rolls to have a sauce so I drizzled some white queso cheese and my favorite taco sauce on top for that added pop of flavor! You can eat them alone or pair them with a yummy spanish rice as a side. These are also great if you have a big family, or a husband who can EAT lol. Moms you won’t be disappointed with this quick, easy and did i mention DELICIOUS meal! Oh, and don’t forget the sour cream and pico de gallo to top it all off! đŸ™‚
