Ham, Mac and Cheese Tacos. Nothing is as awesome as leftovers after a big family holiday. I am always down for a night of minimal cooking and clean up. Who isn’t?
These tacos were inspired by my local watering hole. It has crazy and outrageous tacos every Tuesday night. Apparently, some people believe that tacos should be beef and cheese all the time, but I am always up for trying something new. And I agree with the chefs who make up the crazy fixings every week, that just about anything goes great in a tortilla. Those who aren’t brave enough to taste test something a little out of the ordinary are just missing out. On what? Totally awesome tacos.
