Taco Love (A simple taco recipe)



Taco, according to wikipediais a traditional Mexican dish composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. It can be made with variety of fillings, including beef, chicken, seafood, vegetable and cheese. This Mexican dish is so versatile. And the most exciting part is you won't be needing any utensils in eating this. 


I learned to love the taste of taco when I was in still in college. Our class used to sell this as part of our school project. 


Today I made this after craving for the taste of beef in a hard shell taco. We went to the grocery and bought the basic ingredients to make it. Basic, why? because we don't eat the other ingredients. The ingredients included in my taco are the same ingredients that you can find in Pancake house...oh well as far as i can remember.


Here' the recipe for the Taco.


Makes 12. 


Ingredients


1 box of hard shell taco (12 pcs)
400g ground beef
salt and pepper to taste
About 2-3 tbsp soy sauce
lettuce, shredded
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
tomatoes, chopped
grated cheese
onion (optional)
hot sauce (optional)


Procedure:


1. Heat oil in a medium heat. Saute onion and garlic.
2. Add ground beef, stir until it turned to brown. Season with salt and pepper. Add soy sauce (adjust according to taste). 
3. The meat will sweat, simmer until all the liquid has evaporated.
4. Remove from fire and set aside.


To assemble, put 2 tsps of meat in the hard taco shell, add the vegetables and top with cheese and hot sauce (optional).


Yummy!

mmm, those look like some delicious Tex-Mex tacos you've got there... reminds me of the tacos I grew up on while living in Canada, with those hard, u-shaped taco shells. Very very cool. Thanks for sharing.

I might have to make some of these this weekend... I'll let you know how they turn out if I do!
