Elevating your Taco (Salad) Tuesday

One of my favorite things to make during the week is a taco salad. It's so easy, everyone loves it in my home and it can even be great option for meal prep! See the recipe below.

If you are anything like me, I am always looking for ways to switch up my weekly night meals. Honestly, I just get so bored of the same dinners over and over again! Anyone with me? Sometimes I just get lost searching Pinterest for the best recipes for my family.

In our house, one thing we try to have is a weekly Taco Tuesday night. Although I think we have gotten a little bored by it, I switched it up a bit by adding something new! Now, to elevate our Tuesday meal a little more, Tony’s Fresh Market carries Taco Bell® shredded cheese to take your recipe to the next level. It changes up your usual meal and gives it some more zest and flavor. The perfect addition to your typical, weeknight dinner. Definitely not as boring anymore!

Check out an easy, delicious, loaded Taco Salad Bowl recipe below. It’s made with Taco Bell® Shredded Cheese and ready in 30 minutes!

 Taco Bell® Shredded Taco Night Cheese

I think we all have our go-to recipes we like to make. Personally, one of my favorite and easiest is a taco salad. As a busy mom of picky eaters, I am always looking for recipes ready in 30 minutes or less AND one that everyone will love. This is definitely one of them.

Taco Salad is a great weeknight meal and now Taco Bell has shredded cheese perfect for your family meals!

Another reason why I also like it so much is because of the various ways to change it up. It can be made for meal prep either for lunch or dinner. Rather than using tortillas, I use lettuce and it can be turned it into a salad. Also, you can add a variety of your favorite ingredients or omit ones you don’t like! Overall, it’s a very versatile dish.

Now let’s talk about the CHEESE! The best part! Taco Bell® Shredded Cheese now comes in three varieties: Zesty Ranch, Taco Night and 7-Layer Blend. This recipe uses the Taco Night, but don’t they all sound good?!

Taco Bell® Shredded Cheeses are made with real cheese and are super melty. They are perfect for quesadillas, nachos, tacos and more. I think there’s so much you could make with all those kinds of cheeses! Most importantly, where can you find them? You can find all varieties at Tony’s Fresh Market in the Chicagoland area.

The Setup

This recipe only calls for a few ingredients, many you might even have in your fridge. Those are the best for us moms right?! But you can definitely find everything at Tony’s, like the Taco Bell® Shredded Cheese and Taco Bell® Seasoning Mix. Plus, they make some of my favorite guacamole!
