Another tin can box, "Taco" inspired by Ortega 4 ounce green chili cans

The instructions for the tin can box is here.
All you have to do is add food stuffs.

I had to do it.
The Ortega can.

Everything you would need for a taco dinner.

Onions, tomatoes, and shells.

Olives, avocados, and red peppers.

Beans, Cheese, and green peepers.

Lid off.

The whole thing has a taco shell finish.
Taco feet, ;-D
This has got to be one of my all time favorites and it makes me hungry.
