I started out making Mexican soup but as it was cooking, I had a brain storm. Why not turn it into tacos? And the rest as they say is history.
NOTE:
The recipe for the pickled onions is posted on my recipes that I have posted. They are called tickled pink pickled onions.
I hope y'all enjoy these tacos.
NOTE:
If your not a fan of lime or only like it a wee bit, use only 1/2 or omit it all together.
