Carrie’s Tacos


My good friend Carrie grew up eating Mexican food, unlike me, and can cook some seriously good tacos.  One day she brought all the fixings over to my house and cooked my family a big taco feast.
They are now one of our favorite meals and I suspect they will be what my hubby requests for his birthday dinner!
They are fun to make as a family and also with friends, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t hear any complaints!
Carrie is serving in Afghanistan right now, so I’m really looking forward to her getting back home and cooking for her!

CARRIE’S TACOS
Corn tortillas
oil for frying
shredded cheese, (a mexican blend or cheddar and Monterey jack)
chopped tomatoes
chopped onions
shredded lettuce
cilantro
ground beef (cooked with a little taco seasoning or garlic salt)
refried beans
green taco sauce
salsa
sour cream
guacamole

Put about 1/2 an inch of olive or canola oil in a pan and heat over medium high heat.  When hot, cook the tortillas a few seconds on each side.  You want to soften them, not make them too crispy.
As each tortilla is cooked, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and blot off any excess oil.  (This is a good time to have a helper, it will go faster.)

Put a little cheese on the tortillas and fold in half.


Put on a baking sheet as you go, keeping warm in a 200 degree oven.
Repeat with remaining tortillas.
When ready to eat, open your tortillas and the cheese should be melted

Pile on toppings of your choice, repeat, and enjoy!
