Tacos Ain’t Just for Tuesday!

If no one else has told you, I’ll be the first tacos ain’t just for Tuesday! Why would anyone want to delegate only one day out of the week to enjoy something as delicious as tacos?!?!?!

Speaking of delicious, let’s talk about Birria tacos! If you’re like me you’re always on the hunt for recipes that are not only delicious but easy to tackle. I recently joined Tik Tok (I know I know, I’m late to the party) and found the easiest and most delicious Birria taco recipe from @saltycocina. 

The recipe was so easy to follow with not too many ingredients and packs such a punch of flavor. I will say this recipe is a labor of love but don’t worry, your pot does most the work.
