As a Texas native, I prefer spicy food. But since my husband and I both work nights (I'm a nurse), I also need quick dishes like this. I've taken it to parties at work, too, and most tasters enjoy it - with an icy cold soda in most cases! -Jacquie Baldwin, Raleigh, North Carolina

I was a bit disappointed in these. They were ok, just nothing special. Needed a bit more flavor.

I generally just eat regular tacos, but these won me over! They're great! Even my kids (1 & 2 years old) loved them!
