Maddie's Tacos

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Mission Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is, of course, a well-known fact that my kids are picky eaters. Lobsters, yes. Broccoli, no. Chicken fingers, yes. Grilled chicken, no. Tacos with ground beef, spices, lettuce, tomato, cheese and salsa -- NO. Mission Flour Tortillas with shredded cheese and absolutely nothing else -- YES!!

So when I heard that Mission Foods is kicking off the summer with the Mission Menus Challenge, I thought my daughter, Maddie, might be interested in submitting her recipe for Maddie's Tacos. The contest started on June 28, 2010, when Chef Sara Moulton began to encourage consumers to submit their budget-friendly recipes to Mission for the chance to compete in a cook-off in Los Angeles and win a $10,000 dream kitchen makeover. The grand prize winner gets round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations for two to the Mission Menus Challenge Cook-off on September 10, 2010 at the Hard Rock Café in Los Angeles.

All recipes must:
• Include Mission Flour Tortillas
• Be original
• Feed a family of five for $10 or less

Maddie and the rest of you have the chance to submit your recipe online until Monday, August 9th. Even if Maddie doesn't win the grand prize, there's a bunch of weekly prizes.

Kid-friendly and convenient, Mission Flour Tortillas contain 0 grams trans fat per serving and are cholesterol free. They are available in small (6"), medium (8") and large (10”) sizes in major grocery stores nationwide. I just picked up two packages of the large ones and five bags of shredded cheese (big sale, big appetite) at Shop Rite in Bernardsville, NJ, so that Maddie can try out her recipes on our family.
