    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.

    The meat mixture is very plain, but the green sauce is what elevates this simple taco. It is tart from the tomatillos, creamy from the avacadoes, and has a lovely heat from the garlic & jalapenos (I used two seeded), and then the nice punch from the cilantro. My 3 yr old grandson was visiting when I made these. He ate two with added cheese & sour cream and no sauce. Made for ZWT4.
