Tacos a la Ninfa

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by PanNan

These tacos are served at Ninfa's restaurants. Although a chain now, the original restaurant on Navigation Street in Houston can not be duplicated for ambiance and quality of the food. These tacos are easy to make, and are delicious. The prep time includes an hour of marinating.

I thought the marinade was very good and my daughter liked the meat. My husband said so-so. I think his taste buds have shriveled up. But in fairness to him I have given this 4 stars. Thanks for posting this PanNan!
