Tacos for a Crowd

 I sent the after school kids all the makings for a taco bar yesterday.

 I browned 8 pounds of ground beef.

 Chorizo poop, sorry...it's just how it comes out of the package.  I like to add it to tacos because it adds so much flavor.

 Season the meat with salt and pepper, granulated onion and garlic, cumin and chili powder.


I also made a lot of Mexican garlic rice to eat alongside the tacos.
I sent it to them with shredded lettuce, Mexican cheese, flour tortillas and hot sauce for the kids that like things spicy.  The kids had a blast making their own tacos. This made enough for about 60 tacos.

I'm not generally a fan of chorizo sausage but I can see that it would add a lot to taco meat!

I've been reading your blog a while. Don't know when I commented last.

You are a very sweet, thoughtful and generous lady to do this for those kids.

We had taco's for supper last night. I like that you added the chorizo, but my hubby does not like it.

Looks delicious.

I was taking a quick look at all the photos before I started to read and I had to check really good what it was that looked like poop :-) :-) :-)

I ordered a baguette with what they called taco mix filling at work and I've never been as disappointed as when I ate that bone, it smelled nice but tasted absolutely nothing, I sat there and wished I could have had some of what Your kids got :-)

Have a great day!

Looks good, but I think of tacos made with corn tortillas. I would call yours burritos which happens to be favorite of my husband. We had something similar for dinner just a few nights ago. I put refried beans in ours.
