We were craving Tacos and I had random ingredients laying around. I was having a flare up and my stomach was in bad shape so I got creative. This was an impromptu make it up as I go kinda dinner. It turned out really well. The first few bites I wasn’t sure but then…the flavor really set in and it was tasty. The kids loved it too.
