  1. These are fantastic! Very easy and filling. I need to find a sauce (other than hot sauce) that goes well, as mine came out pretty dry.

    1. I've tried several sauces to pair with these tacos,I did enjoy a spicy mayo sauce I found online as well as a creamy cilantro! Just depends on my mood of spicy or savory! :)
