Taco Bites

After a brief hiatus last week, Football Food Friday is back, with one of my favorite snacks of all time. Let’s all just get real for a second – tacos are one of the best foods of all time. Is there anyone who can honestly disagree with that? In our house, we love tacos so much that we get them everyย Tuesday, without fail. We’ve been going to the same taco place every week for almost two years now. We missed one time, because we were on our honeymoon, but we made up for it by going the day after we got back. So, yeah, you could say we love tacos.

Here’s the thing though, sometimes one taco a week is not enough – especially during football season. So, I made these little taco bites for us a couple Sundays ago, and they were awesome. They’re not exactly bite size. Maybe more like four-bite size? But they’re definitely small enough that you can justify eating a couple of them in one sitting. Happy football watching and snack eating, my friends!
