For our family this means easily finding everything we need for our favorite weeknight dinner, tacos. Using simple ingriedients like fire roasted tomatoes can add a lot of flavor to your meals, for me it’s just an extra way I like to sneak in extra vegetables.

Add some well seasoned beef and black beans and you have a delicious taco. It’s really simple if you like a hard crunchy taco shell to fry your own.

My kids are busy, and by busy I mean after they come home form school mom’s taxi peels out of the driveway to take them to their various after school activities. We make it a priority to come together at the dinner table and it’s even better when I don’t have to make a complicated dinner to please everyone.

Albertsons wants to invite shoppers to join in the conversation by sharing your own Signature stories, photos and videos online using #MySignatureMoments.

    I could eat tacos every day.

  4. Julie Hawkins on May 11, 2016 at 2:05 pm

    I’d like to try the diced fire roasted tomatoes, because they look like they would be a great addition to so many of my recipes.

  13. Amber on May 7, 2016 at 2:56 am

    I’d love to try the fire roasted tomatoes in my tacos and maybe in a salad too or a stew! It seems liek a very versatile, flavorful and nutritious ingredient!

  14. doug gerard on May 6, 2016 at 6:31 pm

    diced fire roasted tomatoes–I always see these cans in the stores but have yet to try them, think I will soon!

  15. Lisa on May 6, 2016 at 4:50 pm

    I need to try those tomatoes stat! The shells look amazing too!

  16. shell on May 6, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    Tacos are an easy meal here, too. We also do spaghetti, mac & cheese, and burgers for easy nights.

  17. Janis on May 6, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    Great ideas here. Tacos have always been a favorite for my kids at our house and we usually have them once a week.

  18. Carol on May 6, 2016 at 12:43 pm

    I like the fire roasted tomatoes.

  19. Louise Bishop on May 6, 2016 at 10:16 am

    Family dinner is such an important time and I agree that tacos are a great way to please everyone without a lot of extra cooking. Great idea for a busy night.

  20. Theresa on May 6, 2016 at 8:15 am

    I am looking forward to trying those fire roasted tomatoes. I bet they give a real kick to your Mexican dishes!

  21. Seattle Travel Blogger on May 6, 2016 at 6:23 am

    My favorite type of tacos are the chicken soft tacos.
    Thanks for the helpful tips you posted here.

  22. Onica (MommyFactor) on May 6, 2016 at 12:48 am

    Taco nights are a yummy idea. I like that you can add healthy ingredients and make yourself.

  23. Cynthia Mercado on May 5, 2016 at 11:23 pm

    We definitely go through paper towels like no tomorrow!

  24. Aurey on May 5, 2016 at 10:05 pm

    Yum tacos. They sound good. I’ll be putting them on my shopping list for the week.

  25. Candice M on May 5, 2016 at 9:38 pm

    I like the fire roasted tomatoes.

  26. Janeane Davis on May 5, 2016 at 9:10 pm

    TAco night happens once a week at our house. I have never made my own guacamole and would like to try that.

  27. Stacie Vaughan on May 5, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    These look so good i wish i could have some right now. I will have to get the ingredients i need to make this recipe.

  28. Tammi Roy on May 5, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    Tacos are a great meal to make on busy nights. I will have to try this recipe this week. My kids will love it.

  29. Ann Bacciaglia on May 5, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    Taco night is a popular day of the week in our house. I will have to try this recipe next week.

  30. Toni | BoulderLocavore.com on May 5, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    No matter how simple, having dinner together is so important. We’d love tacos any night!

  31. Kelly on May 5, 2016 at 7:33 pm

    The words ‘tacos’ and ‘easy’ in one sentence is music to my ears. Love how you have a slice of avocado on the side – I eat my avocados straight-up as well!


  32. Dawn Lopez on May 5, 2016 at 7:10 pm

    Taco night is always a hit at our house! I like to serve foods that my family enjoys because I think family meals are so important.

  33. Jennifer Williams on May 5, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    I think it is important – even with our busy schedules – to have family dinners. Tacos are one of our go to meals because they are quick, easy and all of my boys love them. I am glad I am not the only mom peeling out of the driveway for my taxi driver duties!

  34. Cathi C on May 5, 2016 at 5:20 pm

    We shop at Vons often. They have an excellent selection of organic, vegan and gluten-free products. They were also the second big market to ever open in my valley over 35 years ago!

  35. Kathy on May 5, 2016 at 4:50 pm

    I love having taco night. It’s easy to do because everyone gets to make them just the way they’d like them. That means nobody has to be picky!

  36. Jeni Hawkins on May 5, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    YUM! Am I crazy because I never thought about putting romaine in my tacos? That will be the ONLY type of lettuce I use now! GREAT idea

  37. Cinny on May 5, 2016 at 2:58 pm

    We do taco salad a lot because it’s straight forward and simple. Plus, it’s delicious!

  38. Pam on May 5, 2016 at 2:34 pm

    We were just thinking about making tacos today since it is Cinco de Mayo! We love tacos on busy nights!

  39. MJ L on May 5, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    Yummy! We love Taco nights here as well. Those taco shells look so good!

  40. Meagan on May 5, 2016 at 1:41 pm

    We have taco night at least once a week! I need to try those tomatoes, they look delicious!

  41. Heather @ Kraus House Mom on May 5, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    Three nights a week my kids have some sort of practice and we don’t get home until after 7pm. The crock pot is my savior. It’s ready when we get home and I make sure to use the liners so I don’t have to scrub it clean, just wash it normally.

  42. MELISASource on May 5, 2016 at 12:06 pm

    Von’s sounds like a great store. Their products look great, and it sounds like they have a huge selection. I wish we had them around us. I’m not super thrilled with my current store.

  43. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle on May 5, 2016 at 12:00 pm

    My family loves taco Tuesday. We’re also big fans of Friday night movie junk food marathons.

  44. Melissa Lawler on May 5, 2016 at 10:35 am

    I do most of my shopping at Safeway (the Von’s equivalent in my area). I love the high quality of their meat and produce.

  45. Jeanette on May 5, 2016 at 10:17 am

    It’s funny that I read this today because the night before last we cannot think of anything to eat so we came up with tacos because it is so easy. We never use guacamole that we should because it looks delicious.
