Taco Poptarts

THESE are life changing!! Okay, maybe not that extreme, but they are pretty darn awesome! Add in the fact they are simple to make, kid friendly, and family approved….this is a winner!!

Last Tuesday (Taco Tuesday of course), I decided to whip these up using some extra pie crusts I had in the refrigerator. Each of us were able to choose our own dip (salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc.) as well our desired toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, extra cheese, avocado). I had prepped them earlier in the day, so once the kids came home from school and it was homework time, I was able to pop these in the oven and have dinner ready to go in no time!

These make great lunches, dinners, on the go snacks, or even appetizers!! Next Taco Tuesday (or any day desired), be sure to whip these up, your family will love them!!

Oh I like this idea. I just saw on the Chew where they did chicken pot pies like this too. They said they freeze really well also after cooked so then you can just pop them in toaster to reheat. I think it was The Chew might have been Kitchen on foodnetwork
