A note about serious food allergies

Basic is bad nowadays (or was ten years ago… what is nowadays anyway?) but these ground beef tacos are basic in the best way. Ground beef, corn, and tomatoes are topped by a scrumptious ranch slaw and some pickled jalapeños. Basic is good; we don't care what Gen Z says. (Who?)
