Gluten Free Taco Tuesday…Or Anyday! 

Let’s be honest, I usually don’t cook on Saturday night.  It’s my day off. But when Pookah suggested Taco Tuesday on a Saturday night…I couldn’t resist. 

Taco Tuesday ( on a Saturday this time) always includes a choice of tacos for my husband and Pookah and a taco bowl for me ( while sneaking in one taco for myself)!

Since Pookah is gluten free due to a wheat allergy, we have one brand that is our go-to when we have Gluten Free Taco Tuesday: Old El Paso!

The Old El Paso Gluten Free Crunchy Shells are our favorite for Taco Tuesday or tacos any night! I really can’t tell the difference between the gluten-free shells and the regular ones, so the whole family loves them. We always add the Old El Paso Traditional Refried Beans because they are the perfect complement to any Taco Tuesday.  The best part of this is that I can order them both from Walmart online along with all of the other taco ingredients and have them ready to be picked up! No long lines or walking around the store when you are tired after a long day at work! 

Walmart Online Grocery Pick-up makes it so easy for me as a busy mom to be able to make a fun, easy weeknight dinner like tacos and taco bowls.

My favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s easy. Brown your ground turkey or beef, add in seasoning, put the chicken in the oven and slice and add toppings.
