About 25 to 30 minutes Review: When a friend suggested a last-minute dinner with the kids, I grabbed this kit and was ready to go. Between our two kitchens, we had the required ground beef as well as lettuce, tomato, sour cream and other assorted condiments. While the younger set played, we cooked and seasoned the ground beef, adding milk to the surprisingly tasty powdered cheese sauce included in the dinner kit. Individual taco shells were toasted, assembled by the munchkins according to their tastes and then baked. We adults had hardly finished assembling our own mini-pizzas when the kids exited the table en masse - their plates completely cleaned.
