Spicy Ground Lamb filled Tacos

Lamb Tacos
My favorite Tacos are crispy and crunchy loaded with freshly made ground lamb, fresh sour cream and salsa Fresca. I love-love spicy minced meat (pretty much grew on it), little spicy salsa style toppings and then dollop of sour cream just balances out every thing in the party. Growing up, my mom always kept a batch of spicy lamb and sour creama in refrigerator and we had fun taco times very often. Spicy Ground Lamb is a make ahead dish. in-fact to me, it always tastes better the next day. So whenever you wanna have fun taco time with your family, just keep crispy tortillas in pantry, add some re-heated spicy lamb, fresh salsa, top with cilantro and yummy yummy - every taste bud will say thanks to you for a delicious Taco Tuesday.
