    This is my second time making this recipe. It was so yummy. I always season the meat before cooking though.

    I love this recipe as a spin on regular tacos...this is more of a saucy taco filling. Yummy and quick!

    I thought it was odd that this didn't call for any taco seasoning but I figured the hot sauce would make up for it. It was good, but I'll definitely use some seasoning next time.
