With COVID going on, Matt is working from home, and with having both boys home it gets kind of hectic. I just need healthy recipes that are quick and easy, but also delicious. Matt loves tacos and so do I. Turkey tacos were very good, you can’t even tell it’s turkey and not ground beef. I was happy to find a healthy alternative to one of our favorite meals!
