Thank you for sharing!

A quick and easy way to make one of my favorite restaurant treats: The Simple Taco Salad. I’m seriously in love with this recipe–might have to snag another one.

So, the end of the day comes and I want nothing more than to head to my favorite restaurant and order up one of my favorite meals–the taco salad.

But, alas, I am lazy and too tired to even hit the streets to go to a restaurant.

What. Is. A. Girl. TO DO?!

Make one her dang-self, that’s what.

Seriously, it’s so much more simple to make myself a Simple Taco Salad at home than it is to load up the kids and drive over to the Tex-Mex place-of-choice for the evening.

Wow. This is the taco salad of my dreams. Simple, easy and delicious. I can't wait! #taco #tacosalad #texmex #mexican #tasty #recipe #yum

Then unload the kids.

Somehow get us inside without anyone getting run over in the parking lot.

Get set at a table–and not lose anyone.

AND WE STILL HAVEN’T EVEN ORDERED.

Wow. This is the taco salad of my dreams. Simple, easy and delicious. I can't wait! #taco #tacosalad #texmex #mexican #tasty #recipe #yum

Just stop. I seriously can’t go any further. This isn’t happening.

I’m just staying home and making a Taco Salad for my dern self.

It’ll take less time and a bajillion times less stress.

If you’re tired of all that jazz, too, feel free to make yourself a Simple Taco Salad.

Wow. This is the taco salad of my dreams. Simple, easy and delicious. I can't wait! #taco #tacosalad #texmex #mexican #tasty #recipe #yum

And pin it–because you know that night is coming where you’d like to not go out too…
