Crabby Breakfast Tacos

Some trips, you want to last forever. That’s how I’m still feeling about my incredibly gluttonous trip to South By Southwest in Austin Texas. Eating breakfast tacos from food trucks in the mornings quickly proved to be the best way to start my days. So, here I am making quick and easy, no fuss or muss, super delicious breakfast tacos while making sure to kick them up a notch by using Crab Classic—which, ahem, are made in 100% gluten-free facility and is certified heart healthy by the American Heart Association. Yeah, I’m feeling super healthy eating them as I’m writing this! Oh, I know you’ll love them, too.
