If on one of these nights you plan to make something easy but delicious for supper, then we have a tasty dish that the whole family will enjoy! This recipe for fiesta flats comes to us from our partners at H-E-B and requires Ortega® Fiesta Flat™ Taco Shell Bottoms. For this platter, though, we’re turning the flavor up a bit by substituting ground beef with our beef chorizo.
