Tax....they're not in the frozen section. They're usually next to the fresh meat isle.

They're not in the frozen food section. They're with the fresh chicken parts in a refrigerated case. There are also similar packages of drumsticks, thighs, breasts. Whole chickens are there too.

So, these wings aren't frozen. It's just that you freeze them?

I'll look at the section that has chicken and chicken parts. I would have thought I would have noticed those, but sometimes I'm kinda oblivious.

Yes. The six pack is three meals for us. So I freeze them and take out two at a time for our dinner. The package looks like this. There are three more joined packages behind the three you see in the picture.

Or if that one doesn't look good to you Carol, I really like this one:

If you omit the salt you'll never notice - trust me.

Penzey's "Arizona Dreaming" is a wonderful salt-free taco seasoning!

Thanks Andy. Now, I know what I'm looking for. Here it will be one pack at a time, 'cause Stirling thinks wings are too fiddly and won't eat them.

As to taco seasoning. Stirling read the ingredients on the Old El Paso package, that we used to use, and worked out a recipe and wrote it down. Now he just uses that when he makes tacos. They are really good.

We use flour tortillas for tacos. I can eat either flour or corn, but DH only likes the soft tacos. I bought a pkg of corn tortillas so I can make a couple hard ones for myself next time. I am also going to try my hand at making tortilla chips from them to go with my bean dip. I have an easy recipe around here somewhere.

Carol, we put all the various taco ingredients on a lazy Susan and each assemble our own tacos. It would be simple for us to have two kinds of tortillas, so that was a choice too.
