Crunchy Taco Bake
An Easy Way of Cooking a Classic Mexican Dish - A Pinterest Do!
Is there any more perfect food than a taco? It's like a sandwich but easier to hold. It's compact but taste full. If you've ever been to the southwest than hopefully you've tasted a great one. Now I am not talking about Taco Bell. Nothing wrong with Taco Bell. I grew up eating Taco Bell. But what I am talking about is an honest to goodness Taco. If you haven't...venir aquÃ ahora y comer un taco, come here now and eat a taco. Oh by the way, even the Taco Bell taco's taste different in California.
I ran across a great looking picture of a taco bake on Pinterest and I decided to health it up a little and give it a try. It turned out really tasty and a dish the whole family enjoyed.
It's easy, quick, affordable, and best of all Delicious. Hope you enjoy.
