Thirty minutes are all you need to create Mexican night in your kitchen tonight. This recipe comes from Cooking Light, so you know it has to be good. And with only 390 calories for two tacos, go ahead and make yourself a frozen margarita! 😉 I am a huge Mexican food fan and Andrew and I usually have Mexican night at least twice a month. I was going to make our favorite beef tacos until I spotted this recipe in one my Cooking Light magazines that I have been neglecting for the past few weeks. They are so delicious and super easy to throw together on a busy weeknight that I know they will become a regular favorite in our house. Serve these tacos with Mexican rice and guacamole and your family will wish every night was taco night!
