i made this easy meal for our dinner tonight because lance suggested it. i made some adjustments: i skipped the onion powder and garlic powder (i used fresh garlic instead) and since lance had some taco seasoning leftover from a previous bachelor meal, i decided to sprinkle some of that in too.  it smelled wonderful and was pretty darn tasty !

a little bit on the salty side though… note to self: i’ll have to remember to reduce the amount of sugar and salt in future recipes that i try.

don’t forget the tortillas, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, and cheese !
