Keeping it simple tonight. I worked late tonight, so my husband had dinner patrol. Once again, we are rated “A” for “anyone can make it”. Tacos are easy shmeasy, but I’m pretty sure I could have them three times a week and be completely content. Aldi has all the essential pieces at gorgeous prices. I use 1 lb ground turkey, 1 taco seasoning packet, 1/3 package of shredded cheddar cheese, 2 Roma tomatoes, 1/2 chunk romaine lettuce, 1 package soft taco shells. Cook your meat and the taco seasoning as the packet instructs, chop up the tomatoes and lettuce, put it all in bowls, open the soft shells, throw all the stuff on top, roll it up, and eat. Record breaking speed, Captain. Of course there are a million gorgeous twists you can add to the taco to make it gourmet. I guarantee to go there eventually, but for tonight its Taco Tuesday… the foundation from which gourmetgotgorgeous will grow and show her obsession with Mexican food.
Aldi Price Breakdown: 1 lb ground turkey- $1.39, 1 taco seasoning packet- 35cents, 1/3 package of shredded cheddar cheese- $1.00 , 2 Roma tomatoes- 33cents, 1/2 chunk romaine lettuce- 42cents, 1 package soft taco shells- 99cents= $4.48 for plenty of soft tacos for 4.
