This really was delicious! I didn't use tequila either and don't think the flavor suffered at all. I topped these with some sour cream.

This was great and we all just loved it - so quick and easy! The only thing that I didn't use was the tequila (don't keep it in the house) and they were great anyway. Will definitely keep this on the menu list as it's a nice change from regular taco meat. Thanks for posting this Cynna. Made for Bargain Basement Tag.
