Personal Notes:
I grew up having tacos almost every Friday - which was unusual 50 years ago when the Midwest didn't really know what a taco was. So my mom made them from beef, with whatever spices she had and those hard shell tortillas. But to me a real taco is made with a fresh corn tortilla. Not Flour. Put anything in a corn tortilla and I'm happy. This recipe is so quick and guilt-free that it's tough not to like. Leftovers are great in a salad, as nachos or a quesadilla, etc.

*I use green chili powder from the Spice House in MKE and it works great in these. Any chili powder will do though.
