Tacos - Quick How To


First these tacos are great..but take some effort.  I first put my spices in the meat prior to cooking.  Then I put my meat on the BBQ in patties shape to get the flame broiled taste.  After, I mix the meat and onions into the skillet and let it simmer for a while.  Then put the taco in oven with some cheese and let it melt. Then I dress my tacos...
