Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for “on the go” Advertised as an “on the go” recipe, but we made this for our Saturday evening sit-down meal. The taco seasoning had a kick to it. My husband agreed that the presentation was lovely. Into the freezer with the leftover seasoned meat for another night!
