I bet everyone has their favorite fast food Mexican place and no, I am not talking about Taco Bell, although it can be good from time to time. I’m talking about that little hole in the wall, that may not look like it has good food but it actually does.

Perfectly crunchy, topped with melted cheese and scoops of guacamole. I still crave them to this day so imagine how bummed I was when I didn’t make it there while I was visiting last weekend. Since I was still craving them, the first thing I did when I got home was make my self some and they turned out perfect. Crunchy and loaded with cheese and guacamole. Mmm…

As I said before, this made a lot of meat and I made some awesome sandwiches the next day, be sure to check back on Monday when I share the quick and easy recipe for that. Enjoy!
