Indian Tacos

This is a family favorite recipe. It was the meal that was always requested when we would come home for the weekend in college. It isn't the quickest meal to make, but definitely well worth it and kids love it! I decided it make it the other night for my family and I was surprised how fast I put the meal together, but then again I did use pre-made chili. So far, the record for the most "tacos" eaten goes to some good friends of mine in the midwest that I made them for, who I think put down 12 in one sitting. (yes, they are that good.) We also love to eat the indian bread with some honey butter on top of it.
