Beef Tacos

Posted in
ground beef mixture
1/2 cup olives, sliced
1/2 onion, finely chopped
shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes, chopped
sour cream
shredded cheese

Make your Beef Taco Mix. Then mix up and make your Homemade Tortillas. Of course you can just substitute store bought tortillas, but these hand-made ones are really easy and yummy.

Chop up all the ingredients listed. These tacos can be anything you want so if there's something listed you don't like leave it off. Also add things you like for example jalapenos and such.

Take your tortilla, place meat on it, then all of the lovely ingredients to taste.


Homemade Tortillas

Posted in
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup water
3 tbsp. olive oli

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in water and oil. Turn onto a floured surface; knead for a couple minutes. Divide dough into 8 portions. On a lightly floured surface roll each portion into a 7 inch circle.

In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook tortillas over med-high (almost high) heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

-This would work really well to make wheat tortillas too. Just add 1/2 what flour and 1/2 white.

These were really yummy!

Taco Seasoning Mix

Posted in
1 lb. hamburger
2 tsp. instant minced onions
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. pizza seasoning
1/2 tsp. oregano

Mix all ingredients together. This recipe is for 1 lb of hamburger.

Brown hamburger. Mix seasoning and 1/2 cup water with the hamburger and simmer for 10 minutes.

~ I love this recipe. I find the store mixes to salty, so this is a great substitute. I do omit the oregano because my husband is allergic and it's still great!

Enchilada Pie

Posted in
1 pkg. corn or flour tortillas (10-12)
1 lb. hamburger
1 onion
2 cans small red beans
1 lb. Longhorn style cheese
1 can tomatoes with green chilies
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup salsa

Spray 9x13 inch pan with non stick spray. Brown hamburger, add onion and cook until onion is translucent. Place half the tortillas in bottom of pan, spread to fit as well as possible. Add drained hamburger and spread evenly. Pour undrained beans evenly over hamburger and add sliced or grated cheese over beans.

Place remainder of the tortillas over the cheese. Mix the tomatoes, chicken soup, salsa and pour evenly over tortillas.

Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. This freezes well. You should not use an aluminum pan since the tomato and chilies will eat through the pan-that is experience talking!

Madagascar Vanilla (purchase at Chefs Catalog) Of all the vanilla's I've used this is my favorite. Once you've tried it you won't go back!
