Wednesday's weekly Recipe

Kid's in the Kitchen
My 6 year old and all her little friends love to "help" me cook. Here's something they can help put together...and is "picky eater" friendly! (warning...a bit too high in calories and sodium if mom plans on eating it too....may want to substitute ground turkey, skip the Ranch dressing, and use lowfat cheese!)

Mini Taco Bowls

What You Need
8 flour tortillas (6 inch)
1 lb. extra-lean ground beef
1 cup TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
1/2 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 cups chopped lettuce
1 tomato, chopped
1/4 cup KRAFT Ranch Dressing

Make It
HEAT oven to 350°F.
MICROWAVE tortillas on HIGH 30 sec. Line each of 8 muffin cups with 1 tortilla. Carefully fold back edges of tortillas, leaving opening in centers for filling.
BAKE 10 min. Meanwhile, brown meat in large skillet; drain. Stir in salsa; bring to boil. Simmer on medium-low heat 10 min.
SPOON meat mixture into tortilla bowls; top with remaining ingredients.
