Stuffed #OEPGameDay Tacos - YUMMommy

Stuffed #OEPGameDay Tacos

Game Day was a huge deal in my family growing up.  Not only is the majority of my extended family males, but my parents were (and still are) die hard Dallas Cowboys fans.  I have so many fond memories of watching football games while sharing laughs and breaking bread with my aunts, uncles and cousins.  Now that I have my own family and my own team (Go Patriots!) to root for (sorry Mom), I'm creating new memories starting with creating my own #GameDayFavorites in the kitchen.

When it comes to #GameDayFavorites, I like eats that are quick and easy to prepare, but still delicious to eat.  Trust me, hungry football watcher and rivalry teams do NOT mix!  So, you don't want to keep your guests waiting for food because emotions will bubble over.  Thankfully, my Stuffed #OEPGameDay Tacos with avocado ranch sauce are not only quick and easy, but yummy too!

The first thing I did was run to my local Publix to pick up some Old El Paso Hard & Soft Taco Dinner Kits and an avocado.  Of course, I had my $0.75 off 1 Old El Paso Taco Boat Tortillas or Old El Paso Dinner Kits coupon (coupon available Oct 1st - Oct 30th) handy.  You can print yours here.  The rest of the ingredients I already had on hand in the frig. Also, your Old El Paso Dinner Kit not only comes with your taco shells, but your meat seasoning packet and taco sauce!


Old El Paso Hard & Soft Taco Dinner Kit (1 per group of 3)
2 lbs of Ground Turkey
1 Bag of Shredded Cheese, Mexican Blend
1/2 Head of Lettuce, shredded
1 Cup of Frozen Corn

1 Avocado, chopped
1 Cup of Ranch Dressing


In a food processor or blender, combine the avocado and ranch dressing.  Blend until smooth.  Taste and feel free to add more ranch dressing if needed or until you get the desired taste balance that you prefer.  Your sauce should look roughly like the picture of mine below.  Refrigerate until tacos are done.

In a skillet, I brown the ground turkey on medium-high heat.  Then I drain the turkey when it's done browning.  Next, I add in the frozen corn and seasoning packet from my dinner kit and simmer on low heat until corn is warm.

I preheat my oven to 250 degrees while I wait.  Once the meat base for the tacos is completely done, I warm up the hard taco shells under the oven for about a minute.  I stuff the shells with the meat base, sprinkle on some cheese (optional) and a little lettuce.

For the soft tacos, I mix in cheese, a few tablespoons of the avocado ranch sauce, and some lettuce.  Next, I scoop the filling into the soft tacos.  Once I have my soft tacos filled and folded, I heat up a medium skillet and using non-stick spray, I brown the tortillas on both sides.  Don't worry if some of the filling comes out when you flip them.

Once both sides of the tortillas are browned, I cut each individual soft taco into halves to create soft taco bites!  Genius right?!  Place the hard and soft tacos in your favorite serving dish and serve with taco sauce from the dinner kit and the remaining avocado ranch sauce.  And there you have it, Game Day tacos two ways using one Old El Paso dinner kit!
