I can’t seem to control myself around strawberries these days. I buy flat after flat with the intention of DOING something with them, but they just look so juicy and sweet and perfect that I end up eating them, straight from the carton, unabashedly “as is”.
That is, until I made these tacos. And now I can’t think of doing anything else with them! They are the perfect mix of sweet spicy savory and allow you to still appreciate the beautiful flavor of in-season berries, just in a new (and equally delicious) light.
