We love tacos, any time, any kind, the boys seldom let me get one, unless I snatch one in the process of cooking them. So today, early, before they try to Shanghai my kitchen, I will make em' and put back enough meat so I can have a couple for myself, Hey, the cook deserves to eat too...right? There are a number of ingredients in the marinade, increase or decrease at your discretion. Grilled, broiled or sautéed, they are so good.
