Dinner: Tacos with fresh salsa

18 Jan

Yesterday, our car was in the shop so I came up with a plan to make dinner with only what I had on hand. This is normal, but with working at the summit these past few days, I haven’t had time to think about it before getting home after 5.

B loves tacos and I love to make them for him. Almost every time we visit his family’s house, his father makes amazing tacos. The secret is a great fresh salsa that makes the whole room smell like green onions and lime juice. So tantalizing. 🙂

Sautéed the beef.

Layer all together and serve with Doritos or rice.
