The funny thing is, he has those vegetables and beans! I will have him double check the beans for barley, though, thanks for the warning! Back when I used them, I wasn't gf, so wouldn't have thought about it.
The shredded beef sounds very easy! Our Christmas dinner is going to be shredded beef burritos, but I have to shred my own, lol!
I have just thawed the meat, and will cook it, shred it, then freeze it. Then, I just have to thaw it on Christmas Eve, voila!
Your tacos sound great; we love them!
Thank you again!
