Taco Roni and Giveaway

I was recently ask to do a review of Chef Boyardee Beefaroni.  As I went down the aisles at the store to find the ingredients included the Beefaroni, I was surprised to find that Chef Boyardee offers a Whole Wheat version of their canned pastas for kids.  Not only did I pick up a few for our dinner, but I also picked up a few for my son.  He is extremely picky, but loves the Whole Wheat Chef Boyardee.  This makes for easy meals for him on nights when we are having something he would not normally eat.

On top of buying the Beefaroni, I decided to try the recipe for Taco-Roni.  This recipe was a hit with both my husband and myself, my son would prefer to stick with his plain Beefaroni.  The main recommendation I would make to you when you make this is to add an extra pound of ground beef.  I felt like the Beefaroni was skimping on the meat factor.  There was very little meat and mostly noodles, it was still good but for this meal I would prefer more meat.

  18. I love that when my daughter eats Chef Boyardee instead of what I’m cooking, it isn’t costing me an arm and a leg for a “second meal”, and she’s still getting a hot meal.

  19. I liked you on Facebook long before now :)

  20. I love that my picky 2 year old daughter will actually eat it! When we were having trouble getting her to gain weight a few months back the Chef Boyardee single serve meals were a lifesaver for us since it was about the only thing we could get her to eat. She is doing much better now and I still use them sometimes when she won’t eat what we are having.

  21. I am a fan on Facebook!

  23. I love that it is cheap and tastes like food. Also like the fact that it’s not as bad for them as I once thought. Best of all my kids are in a “we like it cold” phase so I can literally dump a can on a plate and they eat it.

  24. It’s quick, easy and tastes great!!
