If you're looking for a super easy Super Bowl snack that is equally delicious and beautiful, look no further - you've got to try these taco bites!  Whether you plan on having a big party or it's just you and your family, these mini tacos make the perfect treat.

It only takes about 20 minutes to brown ground beef and assemble these treats, but if you plan ahead and "feed your freezer" it takes even less time.   "Feeding your freezer" is one of my favorite time saving techniques where you do the prep work up front and freeze the results for nights when you don't have time.   For example, when I go to the big warehouse stores, I buy five pounds of ground beef at a time! When I get it home, I brown it all in a big dutch oven with onions, but no other seasonings.  After all, it doesn't take that much more time to brown five pounds of meat than it does to brown one!

Once it's all browned, I separate it into one pound vacuum seal bags and freeze it.  That gives us five flexible meals that I can whip up in less than ten minutes each!  I can use the meat for tacos, pasta with meat sauce, chili, beef and noodles, or any number of meals.  It's already cooked, so all you need to do is heat it back up and you're in business.  This technique has been a life saver for me more nights than I can count.

I know we all have nights where we don't have the time we need to fix dinner.  I'd love to hear more ideas on how other people deal with nights like that.  If you've got any tips, please let me know by responding in the comments.

Thank you Kelley. These were a huge hit in our "Super Bowl Test Kitchen," lol. The kids couldn't wait 'till the photos were done so they could devour them.
