You can use soft or hard tortilla tacos, no matter what you do .... IT'S AWESOME! I had sloppy joes for lunch and since I had leftover sloppy joe sauce I made SLOPPY JOE TACOS! It's great I recommend this for anyone. Los tacos son muy rica!

This was fantastic! I made it Sunday for my work lunches and got 4 meals out of it. It reheats very well and tasted as good on day 4 as it did on day 1. I skipped the cumin and used soft tortilla wraps instead of the taco shells. I'll be using this recipe again for sure!
