Author Notes: I have mentioned "the daughter" in my posts before. She is responsible for dragging us into the world of competitive equestriennes. Not a place for the weak of heart! But what friends we have made.

This is the walking taco for after a hot afternoon of riding horses and the good thing--you can share with friends. When her dad asked if she wanted him to make her one of her own--"No thanks, I'll just eat off yours!"

Summer food made to share. This is great because the only ingredient you need to keep warm is the beef. We use a crock pot and then everyone helps themselves to their condiment(s) of choice. This isn't "gourmet" or foodie...but somehow it is the 2nd most popular item on the menu at the horse show.
