  • Tacos

These chicken quinoa tortilla bowls use OLD EL PASO tortilla bowls instead of traditional tortillas. They make loading up and eating extremely easy because of their bowl shape. They will take the mess out of Taco Tuesday!

This is also an easy meal to do most of the prep ahead of time, making it a go-to meal for those busy evenings. With the quinoa made and the vegetables prepared, you can have this meal ready in 15 minutes flat. Everything but the guacamole can be made ahead. While you are warming the quinoa and tortilla bowls, you can quickly make the guacamole.
