Last night my mother-in-law came over and we spent hours upon hours planning details for Erin's shower that we're throwing next month. We finally organized all the chaotic ideas we had floating around in our brains, and came up with a serious amount of adorableness. My heart just can't wait to put all these ideas into motion!
Before we both whipped out our planners, notebooks, sharpies and magazines, I whipped up the yummiest taco themed meal and guys, it made me PUMPED for warmer weather. Now I'm basically begging Caleb to let us get an outdoor patio set so we can enjoy these warm nights (seriously, it was MID 70's last night!!!).
Post baking: yes, I realize its terrible quality, but I didn't want my family judging me for taking photos of my food, so I was quick about it. They don't blog, remember? ;)
Anyway, I know that photo sucks, but I cannot wait to tell you how easy and delicious it all was!!!! You know I get easily intimated by main courses, but this was about the easiest thing I've ever made.
Easy Taco Bake
-1 tube of regular crescent rolls
-1 lb lean ground turkey
-3/4 cup favorite salsa
-Taco seasoning packet
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Step one: preheat oven to 375 and line your pie pan (8-10") with the crescent rolls.
Step two: cook your ground turkey (or beef) like usual.
Step three: drain the meat, stick it back in the skillet and add both your taco seasoning and salsa.
Step four: once its all mixed in, spoon it into the pie and cover it with cheese. Bake for 15-18 minutes until the crust is golden brown and cheeses melted.
- 2 cans sweet corn, drained
- 1/2 red onion diced
- 1 diced green pepper
-1 cup light mayo (I used a little over 3/4 and it was fine)
-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
-1 bag of Chili Cheese Fritos
Step one: mix every ingredient except Fritos in large bowl
Step two: if you are serving it right away, add Fritos last. If not, stick it in the fridge and add Fritos right before serving.
Don't even get me started on this Frito corn "salad" thing. I could've finished the entire bowl on my own. I'm so excited that I now have a go-to summer dish for parties, etc.! I hope you all like it, too! Enjoy your hump day!
