Stovetop Cheesy Flatbread Tacos

This post brought to you by KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese and Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summertime for us means much less oven cooking. In fact if it wasn’t for my children’s strange obsession with Mickey shaped chicken nuggets, I wouldn’t turn the oven on at all. These Stovetop Cheesy Flatbread Tacos are perfect for a quick summer meal.

We love tacos – in fact we eat them at least three or four times a month. They are easy to prepare and the meat keeps really well in the freezer if you want to just make a big batch and separate it into smaller batches so you always have some on hand. I was getting a little tired of our go-to crunchy baked tacos, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to try out the stovetop flatbread that I’d pinned oh so many months ago. Both of my kiddos are missing some of their front teeth, so having the soft bread made it much easier for them to enjoy their favorite meal – Bonus! Oh, and  I thought they were pretty delicious, too.

To make the flatbread, you start with refrigerated pizza dough. I looked for thin crust but my store didn’t have any, and the regular worked fine. Cut the dough into six pieces, roll them thin and place in a hot skillet with oil. They cook up pretty quickly – about a minute per side. To make the tacos, layer the hot taco meat on the hot flatbread. Top with a generous portion of KRAFT shredded taco cheese and give it a minute to melt. Finish it off with shredded romaine lettuce, diced tomatoes, and a little more shredded cheese.

I used the new KRAFT cheese in the stand up pouch that I picked up at Safeway last week. I love that it takes up less room in the fridge and is so easy to pour!

These Cheesy Flatbread Tacos are similar to a Gordita, but much tastier, in my opinion.
