Fried Tacos

You can never go wrong with tacos! I mean, we even have a day of the week dedicated to their deliciousness!

My family’s taco recipe is a little different that what you traditionally think of when you are planning Taco Tuesday (or TacoS Tuesday, as my niece calls it).

We actually fry our tacos, which makes the cheese super gooey and extra delicious!

First, you’ll need to fry the ground beef. Once it is cooked, drain excess fat off.

Add salt & pepper to taste as well as 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and a splash of lemon juice.

Next, spread refried beans on half the corn tortilla. CLICK HERE for the refried beans recipe.

Then add your ground beef on top of the beans and then a slice of cheese.

Fry the taco, folded over, in a pre-heated pan with oil. Don’t add too much; you just want enough to give the tortilla a nice golden finish.

Flip to the other side when the first side is golden brown.

Once both sides have been fried, you add your toppings!

I personally love sour cream, chunky salsa, jalapeños, cilantro, avocado, green onions, and lettuce on my tacos. You can also add Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, tomatoes or cucumbers.

Guacamole is another tasty option too! (CLICK HERE FOR MY GUACAMOLE RECIPE)

They also freeze really well, so I will often make a large batch and freeze the leftover tacos (it seems impossible to have leftover tacos, right?!) to have as a quick, yummy lunch later on.

Just microwave for 2 minutes from frozen and – viola! Tacos!
