Today my baby is 17. How the heck did that happen?!
One of our traditions is that the birthday person gets to set the menu for dinner. Today Devin has requested Cowboy Tacos and fresh pineapple. I love an easy, tasty request. (Last year he wanted Sloppy Joes… ground beef and Manwich sauce. ick. I had to make something separate for me…)
1 lb of ground pork
1 package of Taco Seasoning
1 cup of salsa
1 can spicy chili beans (or pinto beans) undrained
1/4 cup apricot preserves
3 green onions, chopped
Spray large skillet with Pam or use a little oil to lightly coat bottom of the skillet. Over medium-high heat add pork and taco seasoning and cook until browned. Stir in salsa, beans and preserves and mix thoroughly. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Heat corn tortillas in microwave or lightly fry for crunchy shells. Fill tacos and top with green onion.
I’m off to bake a cake. Happy birthday, Devin!
