Recipe of the Week: Eyeball Tacos

Monday night is Halloween!  It's the official kick off of the holiday season.  

We always have traditional homemade pizza, but for something different this year, I am sharing a fun, quick and easy Halloween dinner for your ghosts and goblins.

I remember being so excited as a kid to go trick-or-treating that I never wanted to eat dinner. Serve these tacos for your little ones and they will be ready to go!


Eyeball Tacos


1 lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
12 taco shells
3/4 cup salsa
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tomato, diced
1/2 head lettuce, sliced into shreds
1 small can sliced olives
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or Mexican blend


Mix meat and seasoning mix.  Shape half of the mixture into 24 (1 inch) balls.  Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.

Brown the remaining seasoned ground beef in a small skillet over medium heat and add the salsa.

Fill each taco shell with a thin layer of the cooked beef, sour cream, lettuce and tomato.

Position the 2 meatballs inside the taco shell and add a dollop of sour cream to each. Garnish with olives to make "eyeballs".  Spread the cheese out along the top for stringy hair.
