Recipe Notes

* Taco Seasoning - if you don't have any taco seasoning mixture here's my version that's easy to whip up: 1 tbsp chilli powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika (I use hot, but sweet will work as well), 1 tsp Kosher salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp dried oregano

** Dish keeps well in fridge, making any leftovers an excellent lunch.
