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 making it taco night.

Taco Tuesday is the perfect weeknight meal ! It doesn’t need a lot of ingredients, it’s versatile and can be made any night of the week.

Taco Tuesday ( on a Saturday this time) always includes a choice of tacos for my husband and Pookah and a Gluten Free 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( like black beans, sour cream, ground beef, taco seasoning and all our other favorite toppings, 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. You do not need a lot of ingredients. Simply brown your taco meat (ground turkey or beef) in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add in seasoning, put the chicken in the oven and slice and add toppings.
