      I must admit, when reading the ingredients in this recipe I was quite skeptical, but I was pleasantly surprised with the finished results! The meat didn't have that traditional "fast food taco" taste, but it was deliciously different and both my husband and I liked it much better than regular tacos! Make sure you drain the meat real well before putting it on the tortillas though, or you'll have a very drippy taco! The leftovers were just as good (or better) the next day too! This recipe is a definite keeper... and I'll NEVER make tacos again with ground beef and powdered taco mix! :)

      Made the recipe exactly as directed. The flavors were wonderful and we loved it! However, next time I think I will skip the tortillas and just serve with rice or even noodles. Thank you for sharing! Not my idea of Mexican but amazing all the same. We will definitely make this again.

      The house smelled fantastic while this was cooking. For the most part we really enjoyed this, but I did't like the sweet taste from the brown sugar (would make this again and leave the brown sugar out). Didn't have sirloin steak in my freezer, but did have a lean chuck roast. Very easy recipe - don't be put off by the long list of ingredients. Thanks for posting this Millie!
