Double Decker Tacos like the famous taco place is now made at home.  The best taco you will ever eat!

When my children became fans of Taco Bell, I was uninterested in trying out the menu. Although I am a big fan of Mexican cuisine, I am not a fan of tacos. Basically, because they crumble when you go to eat them. I would just as soon have a taco salad instead.

And then, my daughter Jennifer introduced me to the "Double Decker" at Taco Bell, and I was hooked on them. I knew you could make them yourself, so I set out to get the ingredients, and I was not disappointed. The smooth taste of the flour tortilla with the crunchy taste of the filled taco increased my affections for this wonderful made at home "Double Decker"!
