Mom on a Meal Mission Week #2

This weeks guest post from Christina our Mom on a Meal Mission looks yummy!

Mom...I'm hungry. Can we have tacos for dinner?  That is what I have heard every night this week. Unfortunately, it has been a busy and short money week for us so tacos were out. Tonight, however I have a couple of hours before work so I am going to full fill the week long request, but with a twist. I found a taco recipe on Pillsbury.com that I am going to attempt. It seems simple enough.

My grocery list:
Shredded cheese
Pillsbury Croissant Rolls
Taco Seasoning
Taco Sauce
Sour Cream

The meal approximately cost $3.75 per person.  I have a family of 4.

I tweak the recipe and directions a little to accommodate me in my kitchen.  I didn't have a pie pan so I used a small square pan.  I also used taco sauce instead of the salsa the recipe called for.   

My kids loved it!  My husband liked it also and he doesn't like tacos.  We will definitely make this again!!!  It was another quick, easy and affordable meal.  Mission Accomplished!

Click here for the recipe I used. 

Stay tuned for more easy and affordable meals.

  1. I needed to see this post. I've been craving Taco Bell like 80% of this pregnancy,and my daughter loves pizza but is totally bummed because I can no longer handle traditional pizza. We're totally trying this this week. Thanks!

  2. I am so glad. It was really good! And simple to make. You will have to let me what you think!
