Give me all of the taco flavored kisses! Especially if they taste like this. Tacos, to me, are the greatest party food. They should not be relegated to Tuesdays only. Am I right? What is so great about them? They can be filled with anything and still be amaaaazing tasting. The tortilla is just the vehicle for all of the fillings. Like celery to peanut butter or toast to smashed avocado. Continue reading Smokey portobello, sweet potato & kale tacos + roasted chile avocado crema
