We love Mexican inspired food in the Porter House. Well we love all food but Mexican is high on the list as one of our faves. Especially Taco Salad. I remember one time my sister had called and in our conversation she asked, “What did we have for dinner?” Before I could even answer she was like “Let me guess, ummm Taco Salad.” Real funny sis, Real funny. And no we did not have Taco Salad. Well not that day at least. LOL. Anywho, my good friend and roommate from college introduced me to this fabulous recipe. It’s like having a pizza (our other fave) but in taco formation. It’s #SoGood. Make it today. Your family would love you for it.
