A note about serious food allergies

Deconstruct an overly used and often incorrectly applied concept… as it is here! But this is all the delicious flavors of tacos, broken down into skillet form: seasoned meat topped with luscious cheese, feisty pico de gallo, crunchy tortilla strips, and sour cream. Served on a bed of lettuce, this deconstruction, constructed of the best stuff, is built to last.
