Happy Taco Tuesday! Due to the increased time at home, I, and I’m sure I’m not alone, am spending lots and lots of time in the kitchen. Cooking healthy, tasty meals is an amazing way to show your love to your friends, family and to show some self-love. It is with this thinking that leads to this taco recipe – it’s a little spicy, a little sweet, and a lot of delicious.
