Taco night will never be the same.
Before re-launching the Family Plan, we did our homework and surveyed over 1,000 families with one goal in mind: figure out exactly what they like to eat for dinner. And when the results came back, we were floored to see 77% of respondents citing Mexican as the cuisine that excites them the most. 77%!
And while families appreciate the classic ground beef taco, they’re also not afraid to mix things up with different meats (like ground turkey and pork) and salsas (like pineapple).
So roll up your sleeves and get ready to hear even the pickiest of eaters asking for seconds.
