We adore tacos, don’t you? They’re pretty easy to make at home, and we’d probably whip some up even more than we already do, except for one little problem: they’re so messy! Doesn’t it seem that no matter how tightly or expertly you wrap them up, the filling falls everywhere after just one bite? And if you have kids, it’s more like it EXPLODES everywhere. Thankfully, our partner Old El Paso has a solution for us: taco boats! These delicious tortillas make assembly a snap, and their miniature size means they’re perfectly-portioned to enjoy multiple servings without extra guilt. Watch— Taco Tuesday is about to get even better.
