I love this recipe for mixing up taco night. I am always trying new recipes of course, but many times the boys kind of mope and say, “Mama, can you pleeeeeease cook just regular tacos?” And I do. I snuck this recipe in one night and they gave it all the thumbs up so we repeat it often. This one is great for having something easy to throw together. You could even double this and freeze one for later or take one to a friend. Enjoy!
