Ground Beef Tacos
|Lean ground beef||1 Pound|
|Onion||1 Medium, chopped|
|Canned mexican red chile sauce/Enchilada sauce||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Shredded lettuce||3 Cup (48 tbs)|
|Shredded mild cheddar cheese/Shredded mild jack cheese||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Taco sauce||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Canned Or Bottled)|
|Salad oil||2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)|
In a frying pan, break apart and brown the meat, adding oil if necessary.
Add onion and cook until soft.
Add sauce and simmer slowly about 10 minutes, stirring constantly until liquid has evaporated.
Keep warm, or reheat.
Fry one tortilla at a time in about 1/2-inch of hot oil (365°), until it becomes soft (just a few seconds).
Then fold it in half and hold slightly open with tongs or two forks so that there is a space between the halves for filling to be added later.
Fry the tortilla until crisp and light brown, turning as necessary to cook all sides.
The process takes about 1 minute only.
Drain on paper towels.
Fill each tortilla with meat sauce, lettuce, and cheese; top with sauce.
