  1. It was ok. I had left over sausage to use up, i gave it a try. Probably won't make again.
  2. Was very good idea. I added tomatillos to the recipe. Served with salsa and sour cream shredded lettuce and grated cheddar cheese. My wife liked as well. Worth a taste to anyone who likes smoked sausage or just a change of the usual.
  3. best tacos we have ever had!
  4. This recipe is interesting--it was fun to try for something different but it's not something I would make again. I just think there's better taco fillings and better uses for smoked sausage.
  5. i made this tonight for my family. We all loved it. We added Avacados also.
  6. This was an easy fast meal but there was nothing really wow about it.
  7. A really quick and easy taco recipe. I'm still trying to wrap my head around biting into a taco and getting the smoked sausage flavor but I could get used to this. For those on the go this is another good one.
