In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am posting my delicious beef tacos! I have been making tacos this way ever since I was 17 years old when I learned how from a lady I babysat for. My family loves them and they now prepare their's the same way! It is the chorizo that sets them apart from any other taco that I have ever had. I hope you try this recipe and feel the same as I and my family do!!!
1Fry ground beef and add salt and pepper to taste.
2Add 1/2 link of soft Chorizo and mix into the ground beef. Taste and add additional seasoning if necessary!
3Prepare all toppings and make a nice presentation if you are serving to company.
4To prepare tortillas, add enough oil in pan to cover tortilla and heat to medium high.
5With tongs, add tortilla to hot oil and count 8 seconds. Turn over and count another 8 seconds. Take end of tortilla and fold in half and count another 8 seconds. Turn over and count another 8 seconds. Take paper towel and drain oil from tortilla.
6To cooked tortilla, fill first with the ground beef, about two tablespoons.
7Add cheese on top of meat.
8Add onions if you like.
9Add chopped tomatoes.
10Add chopped avocados.
11Add shredded lettuce...sliced or chopped black olives are also a nice addition.
12Add sour cream and salsa or topping of your choice! Then just enjoy!
13FYI: I am adding pictures for those of you who are unfamiliar with Chorizo. Please note that they also make pork chorizo but I use the beef kind.
14I turned the package over so you can see the product better. This package is frozen.
