In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am posting my delicious beef tacos! I have been making tacos this way ever since I was 17 years old when I learned how from a lady I babysat for. My family loves them and they now prepare their's the same way! It is the chorizo that sets them apart from any other taco that I have ever had. I hope you try this recipe and feel the same as I and my family do!!!
