This was really good and super easy, but it would have been better on bread than in a taco shell. If I make it in the shell again, I will add some roasted red peppers and ricotta cheese to make ...

Of course like other posts... surprisingly good! They were very easy. I added some diced onion and green pepper for a little color and flavor.
