This is a great recipe from my Grandma. We love these tacos! They are not the most-Mexican tacos around, but they are a family favorite for sure. These take some getting used to for some people, but you will grow to love and crave them. They are great with ketchup. I know it's blasphemy to put ketchup on tacos, but trust me!
