Double Decker Turkey Tacos

Double Decker Turkey Tacos - Supper for a Steal

Where has the year gone? Can you believe it is already November. In only a few weeks it will be Christmas, then New Years and 2013. Wow. The year sure has gone fast. Now is the time when family gatherings turn into a weekly occurrence. You can’t eat turkey for every meal. If you are planning on casual family gathering tacos are always a big hit.

I remember when the Double Decker Taco came out at Taco Bell and I just had to have one. Why I never thought to make them at home before I don’t know. I choose to purchase one of the packages that contains 6 hard tacos and 6 soft tacos, but if you are feeding a crowd buying in bulk will be a better option.
