Notes
~TIPS~ Want meat? Try bacon, ground beef or chicken. Jazz it up more with jalapeno, red bell pepper, cilantro, or any of your fav. taco toppings! Use a really bold, flavorful salsa. I use roasted, smokey salsa. So good Used grilled corn for a smokey flavor! You may need to add more salsa if serving the next day since the noodles will soak up some of the salsa.
