TACOS. Little did I know that when I moved to Austin, that my world would be so rocked by tacos. Growing up in Seattle, tacos aren't really a thing. Looking back, it almost makes me laugh that we used to eat tacos on a crunchy shell. They were simple, and ALWAYS the same. Crunchy corn tortilla shell, taco flavored ground beef, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato. Now, these tacos are great, don't get me wrong, but I just had no idea that tacos could be more than that! Thanks to the culture of tacos here in Austin, I have been educated on this glorious staple. Breakfast tacos are now a regular part of my week. Thanks to Torchy's Tacos, Taco Deli, and the numerous taco food trucks in Austin, I now know that it's ok to load up my tacos with ingredients like fried avocados, kimchi, peaches, peanut butter, and a million crazy hot sauces. This recipe may sound strange to you considering the combination of ingredients, but I promise you, it was super tasty. Your taste buds will thank you.
