Epicures Yummy Taco Filling, serve it on a Friday night after shopping, a rainy day Saturday,or movie night fun dinner, whether you're on the run or snuggling up for family movie night this is the perfect casual meal. You can make big batches of the taco hamburger mixture, then freeze it in portions for several meals. Chop your veggies, lettuce tomatoes, and onions if you like.  Its fun to have the whole family involved in making the tacos.  I like to serve it with whole grain Taco Shells, and Epicure Selections Guacamole.
