A really quick and easy taco recipe. I'm still trying to wrap my head around biting into a taco and getting the smoked sausage flavor but I could get used to this. For those on the go this is another good one. Read More

Was very good idea. I added tomatillos to the recipe. Served with salsa and sour cream shredded lettuce and grated cheddar cheese. My wife liked as well. Worth a taste to anyone who likes smoked sausage or just a change of the usual. Read More

This recipe is interesting--it was fun to try for something different but it's not something I would make again. I just think there's better taco fillings and better uses for smoked sausage. Read More
