    Taco bar

    Kelly Nix from SOCIAL CIRCLE, GA

    This was very good and so much fun for my kids. I set it up sort of like a taco bar so they could choose their own toppings. We had a blast!!

    It was kind of good, I didn't put in all the ingredients though because I'm allergic to some of that stuff, like walnuts, etc.
