GROUND BEEF TACOS

GROUND BEEF TACOS
DINNER AT HOME

O.K. I am a certified Taco Snob.  I eat them whenever possible and would NEVER order a Ground Beef Taco and cannot stand when restaurants serve them.  Never would consider a Ground Beef Taco as Mexican food.    We were at the store and I bought some fresh Opah fish that was pink and fresh.  Fresh fish tonight I told my daughter.  After a week in San Diego eating great Carne Asada and Shredded Beef Tacos my daughter said she wanted a Beef Taco.  That was all she had to say and I bolted over to the meat department.  With no time to make Shredded Beef or Carne Asada Tacos like they should be, I went for the Ground Beef.  Turned the Ground Beef into some pretty good tacos using recipe below.  These Tacos are no substitute for a real Shredded Beef or Carne Asada Tacos but they did hit the spot and satisfy our taco fix.

FRESH PICO DE GALLO - TOMATO, ONION, CILANTRO, JALAPENO, LIME JUICE, SALT AND PEPPER
SAUTE SMALL ONION AND JALAPENO IN TWO TABLESPOONS OF OIL
TACO SEASONING MIX
ADDED 1.5 POUNDS OF GROUND BEEF TO ONIONS AND JALAPEƑO
ADDED TACO SEASONING MIX.  ADD SMALL AMOUNTS AT A TIME AND TASTE.  ADD MORE
TO SUIT YOUR TASTE
FINISHED GROUND BEEF IS READY FOR TACOS
HEAT VEGETABLE OIL AND THEN ADD CORN TORTILLA.  COOK ON BOTH SIDES

USING TONGS TURN TORTILLA TO MAKE TACO SHELL.  COOK UNTIL CRUNCHY

NICE CRUNCHY BEEF TACO 
NOT A BAD GROUND BEEF TACO
