A different take on tacos.
Top Review by chrystallibby
These were ok. I had some buttermilk I needed to use up so these were a perfect fit for the ingredients I had. We thought the muffins were great but having the meat mixed in left the entire package seeming a bit dry. Perhaps they would be better if the meat were on the bottom, then turned upside down to melt cheese over. Also think some cheese folded in w/ the batter would be good. Thanks for submitting.
