Hi Melanie, yes, I have probably every monkey bread recipe on the face of the earth which I am going to add to my archives here, but this one is different, it's a meal! We are huge taco fans in this house and I received this in my daily kraft email and just had to try it, very very good for a quick during the week meal.
