This is a good combo of spiciness! I use Romaine lettuce instead of iceberg (made better tacos ) but put DH's into flour tortillas. I rarely use jicama for anything other than crudite so it was nice incorporating it into a recipe! I also sauted a chopped jalapeno with the beef (we wanted a little more heat). Thank you!
