These tacos were quick and easy to make and SO incredibly flavorful. I think all in all it took me a little over 15 minutes to get these tacos on the table from start to finish. These weren’t made from scratch but definitely have that “from scratch” taste. Want to know my secret ingredient?
My secret ingredient is a can of Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ fire roasted tomato cooking sauce.
