Taco Ring Bake

Zoe has been asking for tacos since before the move.  With most of our kitchen stuff in boxes, there was just no way we could make tacos until after the move.  We got the kitchen finished this weekend, and I made this Taco Ring Bake to satisfy Zoe’s taco craving.

The day we came and looked at the new townhouse, I fell in love with it.  Every time we brought stuff over to it, I was always paying close attention to the time of day and the light in the house.  I have been super anxious to post recipes to the blog, because I wanted to play around with the amazing natural light in the house.  I was not disappointed.

Added to the amazing light, is my beautiful kitchen with actual counter space!  I can take pretty pictures in my kitchen too, which is something I couldn’t do before the move.  The light in the kitchen is best in the morning, (hello breakfast recipes) and in the living room in the evening.  I am so excited about the possibilities.

So, let’s get on with today’s recipe.   This taco bake is super easy to make, and it according to Zoe is just as good as “real tacos” without all the mess.  I like this recipe because it’s quick, it’s easy, and it doesn’t require a lot of prep.  It also allows you to “dress up” your tacos however you want, with whatever extras you like.

Taco Ring bake

I have done another taco bake recipe on here before.  What can I say,we like our tacos, I just really hate the prep time, and the mess.  This recipe is really quick and simple, and I am all about the quick and simple.  Especially since I am still unpacking our stuff and getting us all settled into our new home.

It’s good to be blogging again.  It’s going to take a minute to get back into the groove, after being gone, but I am excited about what’s to come in the future!
