Well, I finally got this recipe from my husband by agreeing to be his "sous chef". lol

This is a delicious homemade version of a traditional ground beef taco. The meat mixed in with the pureed spicy beans makes it a creamy delicious bite of taco with some heat.

I love when my husband cooks as he did for the first 6 years of marriage. Not so much do I like being his "sous chef" but that's another story. We are definitely not the "Neely's" working together in the kitchen. LOL

I hope you enjoy Tony's version of a Spicy Beef Taco.
