I love tacos! Duh! Who doesn’t?! Except I completely forget about them. Whenever I’m in the States I eat tacos almost every other day, but here in Egypt I can never remember to make them. I might have to put a picture of a taco on my fridge to remind me.

What’s not to love about tacos? They’re super quick, easy, versatile, and require only a few ingredients. But best of all, you can make them really delicious and nutritious.
