Texas Tacos Recipe: How to Make It

I created this recipe by combining a bunch of taco ingredients that my kids like. Once it’s ready, I often keep the beef mixture warm in a slow cooker so the kids can quickly fill taco shells after an afternoon of rigorous soccer practice. —Susan Scully, Mason, Ohio

Cook time: 45 minutes

Yield: 12

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch cayenne
1 plum or 1/4 cup grape tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
Oil for frying
12 corn tortillas
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
2 plum tomatoes or 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded yellow cheddar or Colby-Jack cheese
Salsa, for serving

Steps:

  • To make the filling, in a large skillet, heat the oil on medium-low heat and add the onion and jalapeño. While stirring occasionally, cook until the onions and jalapeño are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.
  • Add to the skillet the ground beef, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, cayenne, tomatoes, and cilantro. Stir until everything is well combined then turn the heat down to low and simmer while stirring occasionally until the meat is browned, about 15 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and taste and adjust seasonings. Remove from the heat.
  • To make the tacos, line a baking sheet with paper towels and heat 2 inches of oil to 350°F in a heavy skillet. Take a tortilla and fold it in half into a “U” shape, holding it with tongs in the center. Using the tongs, dip one half of the tortilla, lengthwise, into the hot oil, leaving the other half out of the oil. Fry the first side until crisp, about 10 seconds, and then repeat for the other side, holding the already-cooked side out of the oil. Drain the taco shell on a paper-towel-lined sheet and repeat until all the shells are fried.
  • To assemble the tacos, take each shell and fill with ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese. Serve with salsa on the side, if desired
