The holiday season is officially here! It won't be long before out-of-town relatives will be arriving, kids will be home from school, and friends and neighbors will be popping by. As much as we love this time of year, we know that ongoing holiday entertaining can be overwhelming. You probably already have enough on your plate- both literally and figuratively!

Then all it takes is warming tortillas in a microwave, oven or steamer, and guests can assemble their own tacos. Fillings can be vegetarian or vegan, or they can include meat. Even those who can’t tolerate gluten won’t have to worry, as corn tortillas are gluten-free, and they’re the best ones to use for these recipes."
