    I thought these were strictly a South Texas tradition! Good to know I can find some good puffy tacos in other parts of the US!

    With a "heads up" from Michellem, I had to print this one off and I hope to make it this weekend. The chicken shounds moist, and the seasonings are wonderful - can't wait to make this one!
