Tacos for Kids

1/2 head of lettuce, washed and shredded
1 pound ground beef, cooked & drained
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1 8-ounce jar taco sauce
4 cups tortilla chips
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Sour cream, if you like

Wash & rinse lettuce. Spread leaves onto paper towels to drain. Pat it dry with more paper towels. Tear lettuce into bite-size pieces and put in a bowl. Set aside.

Cook ground beef in a skillet and break up the ground beef as it is cook into smaller pieces. As meat is browning add the onion. Cook meat until all pink is gone, stirring and checking all the time. After meat is done, drain any fat with paper towels or into a grease jar.

Stir the tomato sauce and jar of taco sauce into the meat mixture. Cook until mixture is bubbly on medium-high heat. Turn the burner to low and simmer uncovered about 10 minutes or until mixture is thick. Stir now and then. Turn off burner and remove skillet from the burner.

Arrange tortilla chips on each plate. Sprinkle lettuce over chips. Spoon the meat mixture over the lettuce. Sprinkle the meat mixture with cheese. Add sour cream and salsa, if you like.      (Makes 4 servings)

Cooking is fun.

Find a recipe and carefully read it. Assemble the ingredients and equipment that will be needed. Be sure you have an ADULT present to help you at all times.


Always use hot pads or potholders when cooking or baking and make sure an ADULT is there to help you.

Always wash your hands before you start to cook! Use soap and water, clean all parts of your hands really good.

Don't forget: Help clean up after you have finished baking or cooking. Mom & Dad will like that and so will your grandparents.

Best of all, Have Fun and Enjoy!
NOTE:   All ADULTS should help a child read the recipe first to make sure all the ingredients are available and the type of supervision that will be needed for each recipe.
