1 pkg
(1.25 oz) taco seasoning mix
2/3 c

1/4 c

1/4 c

Step-By-Step

1In a large skillet over medium heat, brown beef. Add taco seasoning, salsa and jalapeno juice. Add a little water if mixture is too dry. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
2In another large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Fry each tortilla flat until crispy on both sides. Place tortillas on individual ovenproof plates (or cookie sheets and then transfer them later onto plates). Cover each tortilla with meat mixture, then spread cheese over top.
