Easy crock pot walking tacos

Easy crock pot walking tacos - bowl with ground turkey, topped with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and sour cream, taco bowl

These crock pot walking tacos are an easy weeknight dinner for the family or a crowd! Serve them for Cinco de Mayo or Taco Tuesday!

One of my son’s favorite lunches to get at school is Walking Tacos. If you haven’t heard of them, it’s basically all of the taco fixings served on top of Frito’s or Doritos. We do Taco Tuesday every week in our house and I decided to do the walking tacos but in a crock pot for our family of 4. Scroll down for my recipe and be sure to pin for future!

  • 1 bag Frito’s corn chips (you can also use Doritos)

Easy crockpot walking tacos

5.) When ready to serve scoop in a bowl and top with shredded lettuce, sour cream, cheese and guac.

6.) If you wish, top with more fritos for some extra crunch.

Note – putting the fritos in the crock pot will cause them to get a little soft. If you don’t like the texture, add all ingredients except the fritos into the crock pot. Then when getting ready to serve, layer your bowl with a layer of chips first, then add the taco fixings from the crock pot!

Enjoy!!!

Serve with my spicy pineapple ranch water or one of these margaritas 🙂

The Best Deviled Egg Dip

The best deviled egg dip

This post contains affiliate links

This is the greatest appetizer if you love Deviled Eggs.  To me, it’s not a holiday gathering without the deviled eggs. This is the best deviled egg dip you will ever have. It’s a nice healthy option for Easter or those spring or summer bar-b-ques. The best part is it’s way easier to prepare too! Serve with some fresh veggies and crackers.

The best deviled egg dip

This dip is the perfect way to use up those hard boiled eggs after Easter and makes a great light lunch or snack. You can add whatever seasonings you’d like. I chose to do traditional dill and paprika. Everything But The Bagel Seasoning works really well too! This will be a hit at your Easter table or any party you go to!

(And if you’re looking for more recipes for your Easter brunch, check out this delish spring vegetable goat cheese quiche! Click here for the recipe.)

And these adorable Bunny Treat Jars are a cute place setting or little hostess gift for Easter too!

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 oz of cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • paprika (to taste)
  • chopped dill (to taste)

The best deviled egg dip

Directions:

1.) Start by hard boiling a half dozen eggs.

2.) Once boiled, I like to let mine cool in an ice bath which makes for easier peeling.

3.) Peel and chop the hard boiled eggs.

4.) Put in a food processor with all ingredients (except the paprika and dill). If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a hand mixer and mix until creamy.

5.) When ready to serve, spoon into a bowl and top with paprika and chopped dill.

Serve on a platter with fresh veggies and crackers.

Easy winter salad recipe

Winter salad

This is the best easy winter salad recipe. I am known in the family for making the best salads and it’s a title I take seriously. This one is perfect for Christmas or New Years too. Roasted brussel sprouts add a nice flavor, topped with pomegranate arils that look like little jewels and the cinnamon candied nuts for the perfect sweet crunch! It’s great paired with pork, turkey or a beef.  I’m sharing my recipe below.

Easy Winter Salad Recipe

Easy Winter Salad

Ingredients:

For the salad

  • 2 cups brussels sprouts, sliced
  • olive oil
  • salt/pepper
  • 2 cups chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • dash of cinnamon
  • For the greens I like to use frisee, kale, spring mix, or a half and half blend of spinach and arugula
  • 2 pears, sliced
  • 1 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 log goat cheese crumbled

For the dressing

  • 1/2  cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp  honey
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • dash of salt to taste

Directions:

1.) Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

2.) On a sheet pan lined with foil, divide the pan in half. On one side toss the brussel sprouts with olive oil, salt and pepper. On the other side add the nuts, maple syrup, and cinnamon, coating evenly. Sprinkle the nuts with salt. Bake in the oven until roasted about 15-29 minutes. Be sure to stir the nuts periodically.

3.) While the brussel sprouts and nuts are roasting, in a large salad bowl, add the greens, sliced pears, pomegranate arils goat cheese.

4.) Once the brussel sprouts and nuts are roasted, remove from the oven and add into the salad. Toss evenly.

5.) When ready to serve, prepare the dressing. Add all of the dressing ingredients into a mason jar, top and shake. Then lightly pour over the salad.

Enjoy!!!
