Taco Buddies was a HUGE success over summer camp this year. You ask why! Well I will tell you. We turned one of my children's favorites into a healthy Taco Buddy. The original was a Pilsbury biscuit put into a muffin tin add taco meat cook than add your favorite toppings, The NEW and improved version is healthy and delicious.
The best gift a teacher can get is when the mother of your students sends you a text message with pictures of her daughter making the Taco Buddies and her family loved it.
