Whole Wheat Soft Tacos with crumbled meat

An Indo-Mexican version of the Tacobell soft tacos.Verdict - It is pretty good , the ground beef that you get here in India seems to have a lot more flavor, and the whole wheat chappathis that were used instead or corn tortillas were tastier and more healthy.The cheese I got could have been better and I used garlic mayo instead of sour cream , which was ok .
