Tacos are one of my FAVORITE FOODS!!! In fact.... SECRET... Taco Bell is the ONLY fast food I REFUSE to give up! -_- Yes... Even though I know how horrible it is.. I simply cannot give it up!  I only treat myself to it once every few months or so, or if I'm craving it, that's just that! :D hehe

So, when making tacos at home, you could either MAKE IT or BREAK IT!!  Sometimes it's not even worth making them at home as opposed to going out for them if you're going to just "go all out," and load them with cheese, sour cream, white floured tortillas, and more... OR worse.. USE A BOX of the prepared taco seasoning, and sauces... AHH!!!!  The sodium intake in those are absolutely insane, and the corn the shells are made from are GMO'd...but we don't even think twice before making them most times, because they're quick... and they're simple... and we live a life where those things are very important to us!!!

BUT~ guess what... Lucky for you, I have a recipe that is JUST about as quick (unless you're going all out with the "sour cream" and guac too!!) and simple as it gets!!!!

I like to use Flavor God Taco Seasoning for my tacos!! BUT if you're not familiar with that, or if you don't want to buy it, THEN this is an AMAZING alternative!!!!!!!!
