Anyone else feeling the need to spice up dinners lately? Sheltering at home means a lot of meals in and a lot family feeding that needs to happen. We’ve been having fun getting creative, turning the same staples into unique meals throughout the week. Take for instance, grass fed ground beef; shift up the spices, the way you cook it, and the accompaniments, and all of a sudden, it feels like a different staple altogether.
It’s in this season of extra every night cooking, that I threw together this taco bowl on a whim, and it’s quickly become a family favorite. Taco bowls are not just for Tuesdays anymore, because what day is it anyways? Oh, and just a note: this is especially delicious topped with homemade pink pickled onions. Enjoy!
