Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


8 tacos

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
