Back to school routines can be stressful for the entire family. With new schedules, busy day to day tasks and overall just ramping back up after summer can be so hard. I love to simplify this transition period by relying on meals that don’t require too much effort! So today I’m sharing my recipes for Taco Night! I make my filling with Simply Nature Organic Black Beans from ALDI and they are so so delicious! I also pick up fresh produce from my local ALDI to whip up a delicious Pico De Gallo and quick Guacamole. This dinner is always a hit and it’s just packed with so much flavor! It’s great for families and if you’ve got meat lovers in the family, I love using ALDI Kirkwood Breaded Chicken Filets (pop them in the air fryer for 10 mins) and chop them up for a delicious taco filling!

Depending on your location, ALDI also has the option of grocery delivery or pick up and this past year that has been such a HUGE help for my family. I simply hop on their website, place my order and have my groceries in no time- highly recommend for those with little time on their hands!
