I can't remember where I first saw this idea for a Taco Box dinner, but I tucked it away knowing I would use it one day. So when a friend needed a dinner, the Taco Box dinner was made. We love our Tex-Mex food here in Texas and how fun to make a box to deliver the dinner in?!
So easy to make a little extra to help out a friend. We all know how much it means to have a night off cooking dinner, especially when a husband has had surgery or when a new baby arrives. How many times I have been blessed by a friend's meals and what a treasure they were at the time. Nourishment for the body and the soul.
The original idea called for a wooden box, but I had a cardboard box handy and just the right size. I taped the letters out in painters tape then brought out the spray paint. Red seemed perfect!
The box was filled with chicken taco meat (how to: boneless chicken thighs, salsa or can of tomatoes, some chili powder, salt, pepper and garlic - all go into the crock pot on high for 4-5 hours, then shredded), guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, corn & flour tortillas and beverages for the family (plus a little chocolate for my sweet friend).
So fun to make and a blessing to give.
