My daughter, Jennifer, lives about 20 minutes from the border of Mexico.  Every time we visit her and go to Mexico, we get these type of tacos at a certain taco stand there.  We all love them so much, my daughter figured out a "recipe" that was very similar.  The lime juice makes the taste of the tacos stand out!
