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.
