Today I’m teaming up with our partner, Borden® Cheese, to share our Taco Casserole Cup Recipe as part of this sponsored post.

Sometimes, don’t you feel like you are so busy that you just don’t have time to do what you wanted to do.. .including making a nice dinner for your family?  Yesterday, we had two lacrosse games, a baseball game, a birthday party and I had errands to run. Dinner ended up being my Taco Casserole Cups because they are simple, nutritious and the kids love them. Borden® Cheese believes in weeknight dinners to bring the family together around the table to talk, laugh and enjoy a wholesome, convenient, and I do, too!
Luckily, my family could eat tacos every single night, so this is an easy, go-to meal for us, made with only five ingredients! Between baseball, soccer, housework, homework, work, and preparing for tomorrow’s day, it can be hard to have a well-planned homemade dinner, right?


For me, the hardest part about dinner is planning it, but with a few staples that we keep in our fridge like Borden® Cheese, dinner is quick and easy to make on those busy weeknights! We always keep their shredded cheese and slices in the fridge because I know that they are nutritious; each serving of their cheese provides an excellent source of calcium and is packed with protein. As my son always reminds me “Cheese makes everything taste better.” haha!

My best tip for planning your meals is to make a list of 30 recipes that your family likes.  Write them down, from #1- #30. Every month, use that list.
Example:  The first on my list is my Taco Casserole Cups recipe.  On the second is Pasta with chicken and broccoli, etc… If plans change, fine, but if you can stick to it, it’s so much easier!  

 

I try to keep foods at home that come from companies that I trust. Borden® Cheese works with more than 8,000 family-owned dairy farms across the United States, so for my family, that makes a difference.  


This recipe that I am sharing today is quick, easy, and it uses only a few ingredients from foods that you have at home or can get at your local grocery store.  Plus, this is a great recipe that even the kids will love.
