Green Chile Chicken Flautas

Crispy Grilled Elk Tacos

These delicious little tacos really hit the spot! I normally double up my tortillas, but they held up brilliantly when frying and didn’t need any extra structural support.

I made Mango Salsa Herb Pork Tenderloin for dinner! 💕 The fusion of Mexican and Italian is surprisingly amazing!
