The tacos are good, but I have to say that Guatemalan tacos are different, they are deep fried more like a spring roll made of tortilla with meat filling and served with a simple tomato sauce.
These were okay for us, just a little bland overall. I added some lime juice and salt to the green sauce, and a few spices to the meat mixture, but I just don't think this was to our tastes, sorry.
Very good. I cut back on the potatoes (only 2). We loved them. I saved 1 for breakfast the next morning. Thank you.
