This is one of our family favorites and no matter how many are made there just never seems to be enough.
Here are some pictures and the recipe…ENJOY!!!
MJ’s Beef or Turkey Tacos
Prep Time: 15-20 Mins
Cook Time: 20-30 Mins
Serves: 4-6 People
2.5 lbs. Ground Beef (85-15 or 80-20)
Large Half White Diced Onion
1 teaspoon Canola Oil
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Pepper
One hear of Iceburg Lettuce (Shredded)
½ pound of Grated Cheese
4 Tomatoes (Diced)
Pre-Heat large Frying Pan.
Add 1 teaspoon of Canola Oil.
Once warm, add diced ½ Onion and Saute until almost clear.
Add Ground Beef, cook on Medium Heat and cover.
*You will notice after about 5-7 minutes liquid will start to build up in Frying Pan, do not worry what this is doing is actually cooking the meat in its own juices.
Cook for a total of 15 minutes.
Remove meat from stove and w/ the lid still on drain the liquid slowly from the pan.
*Be careful as it can very hot!!
Put the Frying pan back on the stove.
Add 1 teaspoon of Salt.
Add 1 teaspoon of Pepper.
Brown meat to taste and then put heat on low to keep warm.
How to cook Tortillas
Add ½ cup of Canola Oil to Frying Pan.
Put stove on Medium heat.
Once oil is hot add one corn Tortilla and fold in half let one-side cook for about 1 minute, then carefully flip to cook other side. It is good to use a set of tongs to open the tortillas a bit while cooking as it makes it easier to fill with meat.
Place tortillas on paper towel to drain off excess oil.
Fill cooked tortillas about half way with meat, cheese (putting the cheese on top of the warm meat helps it to melt a little bit), lettuce, tomatoes and don’t forget to include some delicious Randy Jones Habareno Hot Sauce to give it some kick.
