The meat filling in this Navajo Taco recipe has awesome flavor. It is so simple and there are only four ingredients. Steve and I scarfed these down. It was nice to have something different than traditional tacos for a change and they were super easy to make (Rhodes did all the hard work for me!)

    I made these the other night and they were fabulous. I added a little bit of taco seasoning to mine, just to give it a little more taco taste. Thanks for the recipes.
