3 Recipes to Spice up Taco Tuesday

Taco Tuesday is like a bonus holiday we get to enjoy every week!  If you’re into family fiestas like we are, we think you’ll love this Southwestern fare as much as we do.  Our Fajita Seasoning brings the flavor, and the recipes go together faster than you can say “Ole!”  Okay, maybe not quite that fast, but fast enough that you’ll still have time to enjoy a good book after dinner tonight.
