Scary Monster Tacos

These are simple tacos with a twist for the Halloween season that are a hit with the kids!  This is also a low cost and fast meal to prepare.  With its low cost and holiday look this is a great meal for parties or creating with your kids.


  • normal size crunchy taco shells
  • ground beef
  • taco seasoning
  • sliced cheddar cheese
  • shredded lettuce
  • sour cream
  • sliced black olives


Cook the meat with the taco seasoning according to normal cooking instructions.

Lay a taco shell down on a plate and fill with meat. Top with shredded lettuce.

Take a slice of cheddar cheese and place it in taco (you can cut the cheese to more of a tongue shape if you want, we didn't and it still looked like a tongue).

Put two small spoonfuls of sour cream in taco and top with black olive slices to make it look like eyes (we prefer to put it in the taco because it is cleaner and easier to eat, if you would like you can put it on top too).

Then enjoy your scary monster taco!
