Fiesta tacos yes please! Love love love this recipe because it is fun, delicious, of course easy, and seriously great for a party or fiesta. I know that tacos have been getting a lot of love lately because of social media and the famous Taco Tuesdays, but they really are a wonderful meal. The options of preparation are endless, the flavors you can add are bountiful, and they make for a meal to be prepared and enjoyed with others. Also it is a complete meal in one. There is no need to make anything else for the meal, making this a balanced dish.
One aspect that I really enjoy teaching families, kids, and you all that read this (thank you for reading) is the importance of sitting down together at the table and sharing a meal together. This is a critical aspect of eating well, eating healthy, and feeling satisfied with a meal. The more we eat alone or unfocused or lack of mindfulness when we eat the more we tend to eat and the more junk we will eat. I don't know about you, but I definitely don't want to eat more and eat junk. Preparing a meal with or for your family and friends makes for a more balanced and healthy meal.
