    This was amazing! Did it as the directions said, except I added sour cream in the tacos :)

    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!
