found this online I've used ground pork, instead of lamb. Also just cooked the meat like you would for tacos, with the same seasonings listed. The sauce was originally double what I have down, but I found it was way to much(about twice what we used) so I cut it in half, but feel free to double it again if you like lots of sauce.
