They love these tacos. I adapted the recipe from my
mom's house cleaner who was a part of our lives for
as long as I can remember. Her name was Cammie
and she made the best tacos and hot sauce.
1 lb. ground beef
(I like my beef fatty, for the flavor, but if you don't care about
flavor, use the lean kind)
2 tablespoons of chili powder
garlic salt or powder
(whatever you have on hand)
In a large skillet,
throw in some course salt and brown the ground beef.
I like to use a spatula and break up the
ground beef so there are no large chunks.
When the meat is almost brown,
add the chili powder, pepper, and garlic salt.
Turn the heat to low.
Heat another pan with corn oil on high.
(don't leave the kitchen after this step,
or you will come back to a house full of smoke)
Fry the corn tortillas in the hot oil.
(I buy the cheap ones at my local grocery store.
They are thin and not to thick)
Cut up iceberg lettuce in small thin strips
and assemble your tacos. We add grated cheese to the tops
and my husband's homemade hotsauce. My sister-in-law who is the
best cook this side of the Mississippi, likes to put her taco
meat in the uncooked corn tortilla and cook the tacos on a griddle with
very littl oil and no chili powder.
I like them cooked both ways.
I LOVE mexican food. Anytime, Anywhere.
