As anyone placed in front of a bountiful bowl of guacamole knows, this creamy, herbaceous, refreshing dip often steals the show from any meal. Guaco Tacos uses this knowledge to its advantage by making the guac the star of the show from the beginning. Each soft, warmed tortilla is stuffed with spicy, smooth guacamole, crunchy lettuce, and hearty beans, so it's just as hearty as other tacos without distracting from that amazing guac flavor. Guaco Tacos are fast, easy, and as fun to make as they are to pronounce!
