I realize I've given you two "taco" like recipes in the past two weeks, but what can I say? This pregnant mama is craving Mexican.

So I hope you can bare with me.  This are really, really good.  And really, really simple.  And it can feed a crowd, aka, my family.  Granted there are only four of us, but one is the husband who can put away a few platefuls and think nothing of it.

We did have a bit of this meat leftover the next day, so I wrapped them up with some cheese and extra sauce and made a few enchiladas.  Same stuff, different meal!

Now these tacos are exciting, but I also have some other things brewing on this little old blog. First off, have you been following my daily Facebook posts?  We are currently on Day #12. I can't believe the month of February is almost half way done.  I've gotten some great feedback from you guys....I hope you keep tuning in!

Also, during the last week of February a group of about 10 other Iowa food bloggers and I will be hosting a thrilling and fantastic giveaway.  One you definitely don't want to miss out on.  I'll give you a hint....it involves money.

For you.

Excited yet?

I guess if money doesn't excite you, then I sure hope these tacos do!  Because let's be honest most of the work for this dinner is done with the help of a crock pot.  I use my 5 Quart Crock Pot and it works great!  The perfect size.
