What does summer mean for you and your family? Well, because of the nicer weather, it means that we will spending lots of time outdoors. Whether we are lounging near the pool, swinging on the swings sets at the park or a quick friendly soccer match with our friends, our days just don’t seem to slow down. Knowing that this week wasn’t going to be different, this past weekend my husband & I decided to get ahead of the week and prepared ground turkey, so that we can combined it and make quick and easy summer recipes in a jiffy. To my surprise I received an email from #CollectiveBias informing me that through July 20, Sam’s club has lots of savings in the Sam’s Club Instant Savings Booklet including Kraft, Kool-Aid Jammers, of course, I had to head over to my local Sam’s club to shop and take advantage of the savings.
Right now and through July 20, 2014 you can Instantly Save $1.50 on Kool-Aid Jammers Variety Pack; 40 pouches, 10 pouches of each of these flavors: Tropical Punch, Cherry, Kiwi-Strawberry, Blue Raspberry.

I was loving the price on the Kraft Easy Mac Macaroni & Cheese, these Mac & Cheese cups are super easy to prepare (ready under 5 minutes) and you can enjoy a hot meal on the go! Plus, Kraft Easy Mac Macaroni & Cheese cups can help me free my time when preparing a quick lunch for the kiddos. This got me thinking, why stop at lunch? Since no one likes to be cooking for hours upon hours and since we had ground turkey already made from the weekend, how could I prepare an easy, delicious and filling recipe that the kiddos would love? And then it came to me, we had the ground turkey, the Kraft Easy Mac, & the Kraft American singles, why not make Macaroni & Cheese Tacos? These will be super easy to make and tasty, here is what I came up with…
- KRAFT EASY MAC Macaroni & Cheese CUPS
- KRAFT American Singles, shredded or cut in squares
- Left over ground beef or turkey seasoned with Sazon & Latin spices
- Diced Tomatoes
- Tortillas of your choice
- Sour Cream
- Follow the directions on the KRAFT EASY MAC Macaroni & Cheese CUPS. Heat your left over ground beef or turkey and set aside. Place you KRAFT EASY MAC Macaroni & Cheese in a corn or flour tortilla.
- Top your KRAFT EASY MAC Macaroni & Cheese with ground beef or turkey.
- Top your ground beef or turkey and KRAFT EASY MAC Macaroni & Cheese with cut pieces of KRAFT American Singles and place in a toaster oven until cheese melts, about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Top your tacos with sour cream & diced tomatoes. Serve your tacos with Kool-Aid Jammers for a refreshing summer drink, enjoy!
My Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Tacos are super easy to prepare and the best part is that lunch or dinner will be done in less than 10 minutes, therefore, allowing you and your kids time to spend doing more fun things, like playing outside.
