Ground Beef Tacos with Napa Cabbage and Guacamole

Do you have a Taco Tuesday tradition in your house? It was never really a thing for us growing up, but my mom would make it every once, regardless of the day of the week. I never really made tacos for my kids because I couldn’t find any taco shells with agreeable ingredients. I finally found some at my local grocery store which are made ONLY from organic yellow corn and safflower/sunflower oil. Now those are two ingredients I can pronounce! And frankly the only ingredients that should be in your taco shells! So I set out to make these Ground Beef Tacos with Napa Cabbage and Guacamole and made it as a DIY taco assembly for the kids.

And you don’t want to deny your family and loved ones of these either, trust me!
