Who doesn’t love tacos?

If you checked out my post yesterday, you learned about how amazed I was that my loving husband made a delicious meal for me when I got home.  You’ll also read that I was pleasantly surprised he didn’t make tacos, which is one of his favorite foods.

He was at it again tonight. This time a more he prepared a more predictable meal. The meal option tonight was tacos.

It was a healthier alternative to the packaged seasonings you can get at the supermarket.  With a few variations you can make a decent meal for you and your family.

What’s the best part? It’s fast and easy!
