These days I am all about a quick and easy dinner. One of the last things I want to do when I get home from work is spending a ton of time in the kitchen.
And with a baby who is only getting older and not napping as much, that time is precious.
It doesn’t help that work has been incredibly stressful lately, so even meal prepping on the weekends isn’t happening as much as I would like it to.
That’s why quick and easy dinner recipes are a necessity right now.

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/8 cup shredded cheese
- 10 Tablespoons guacamole divided

- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook the lean ground beef until the meat is fully cooked, breaking into small pieces as it cooks. Drain and return to the skillet.

We eat tacos A LOT, so I am all about them too. These make it much more manageable to eat more often…they are just messy, but I don’t mind the mess too much.
This looks so yummy! I love a taco and this makes you feel better about eating them!
