Why I Love This Recipe
Spice up dinnertime with a Mexican-style meal that’s chock full of taste and nutrition. Setting out the makings for Family Fiesta Soft Tacos and letting everyone in the family assemble their own is a fun way to let even young children feel like they’re “cooking.” The flavorful variations “up the ante” with some simple add-ons and preparations. With just a few additional ingredients the tried-and-true taco is transformed into a guacamole-topped tostada, an entrée-grade quesadilla, or a rich casserole of enchiladas.

Ingredients You'll Need
2 (6-inch) corn tortillas
5 tablespoons prepared, refrigerated guacamole
1 cup warm taco meat filling (from Family Fiesta Soft Tacos recipe)
2 tablespoons finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely shredded lettuce
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Heat a large skillet over high heat. Spray with a thin film of oil and wipe out with a paper towel. Cook tortillas on both sides until blistered and soft, about 1 minute per side. Transfer each to a plate.
Top each tortilla with 2 tablespoons guacamole. Mound 1/2 cup taco meat filling on each tortilla. Top each with half the shredded Cheddar cheese, half the shredded lettuce, half the remaining guacamole, and half the cilantro. Serve immediately.
