I had leftover taco meat, and some ricotta I needed to use so this became the perfect recipe. Thanks!

This was so amazing! A new family favorite. I doubled the recipe to feed more and instead of doubling the ricotta cheese I added sour cream with the ricotta cheese. I will definitly be making this again!!! Thank you
