Author Notes

There are many variations to this dish. This is our favorite, a result of many efforts and extensive experimentation. We do these for breakfast or dinner... usually dinner since it takes so much more time when you are half asleep. If you have any left-over taco meat, that can be a great addition. —MTDavids
