This is so flavorful and so easy! We use it in hard shell taco's, and also make burritos out of it. VERY yummy!!!!!

Everyone in the family enjoyed these and they are so easy to make!

These tacos are so bland, no amount of jalepenos and salsa can redeem them. This recipe needs serious modifications.
