Walking Tacos

Last weekend was the big Michigan/Michigan State game and I think we started a new tradition in our family.  Walking tacos were a hit and it was great to prepare everything in advance and then visit with everyone.   I can’t wait to take these on the road for our next tailgating adventure.   GO STATE!
