Sometimes Tuesday feels like Monday and I need something Quick for dinner! Tacos are the perfect solution! I will NEVER buy the packs of seasoning again when I can easily, cheaply, and healthfully (I know this may not be a word, ha!) make my own!
Make a salad or use a romaine lettuce leaves as your shell! Either way, it will be delicious! Also, you can use leftover pork
Use this same blend in my Taco Soup! Enjoy!
