Traditional Tacos

This recipe is all natural, low sodium and great flavor! Yes it is easy to purchase a store bought taco mix seasoning and call it a meal but those mix packets are high in sodium, preservatives and has "natural" flavors = artificial flavors. We paired this meal with a cucumber salad to cool down those spices. Try this taco recipe on the next taco night and you will be muy contento!
