Want some of the best non-traditional tacos you will ever have? Of course you do! We had remnants of burrito meat and lasagna meet that needed to be cooked. We thought we will just add it together and suffer the outcome. Together we tinkered with spices and ingredients in what must have appeared to be two children pretending to cook. Adding a dash of this here, a spill of that there and laughing all the way until we took our first bites. Well... I took my bite first, being that I was the test bunny. I said, "Zo take a bite of this now!" She thought I was pretending and just trying to get her to take a bite until I finally convinced her that I was not fooling around. After we both finished, we had seconds and I snuck thirds! Get your skillets ready and enjoy!
