A note about serious food allergies

If your taste buds could dab, this is what they'd do. (Our kids told us to write that. We don't know what it means.) We do know that these tacos are loaded with flavor and piled with goodness, from creamy guacamole, shrimp flavored with chipotle seasoning, and cooling sour cream on top. A meal this great, you'll want to floss after it. (We don't know what that means, either.) Tip: To remove the core of a tomato, carefully make a circle with your knife around the stem, then remove circle.
