Soft Tacos

This year  of cooking in a 45 minute class period has been quite trying at times.  Some recipes I have found will work very well and others are just not worth the trouble.  It is the same way with busy families.  It can be very difficult to put together a home cooked meal and deal with everyone’s schedule.  Here is a make it in 10 minute meal that you might have forgotten about.  Tacos!  Kids love them as well as adults.  You cannot go wrong.  Another plus is that everything can be made ahead of time and reheated when you are ready to eat.
