DIY Super Simple Shrimp-Filled Soft Tacos--A Kid-Friendly Recipe


Family Night can be Made Fun and Healthy with DIY Shrimp Tacos!



Do-it-Yourself meals are super fun and easy to do. Put all the toppings and the shrimp mixture in bowls with spoons so each person can pick and choose the rainbow of colors they want to include on their tacos. Keep the tacos warm by keeping them covered with the foil on a plate at the table next to the toppings. Sammie and Sax love taco night…and so does Rhubarb!

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 package (16 ounces) frozen pepper and onion stir-fry mix
