MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2010

This is one of my favorite ways to have tacos. We use soft flour tortillas instead of taco shells...really like this stuff, especially when it is served with the tomato and avacado salad shown in the picture or down below in the serve with section...SUPER YUMMY!!!!
