Real corn tortillas were created to carry RedBeards No. 8 seasoned ground beef.  Stay far away from those lazy “taco seasoning” packets and punch of the flavors with RedBeards Habanero Hot Sauce and our No. 8 rub.  These quick on the go Gringo Tacos are a perfectly tasty snack or dinner option. Estimated cook time 30 min.

Ingredients: (vary according to personal taste/heat)

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 dozen Mission Yellow Corn Tortillas
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese (about 1 cup)
  • Shredded Iceberg Lettuce (about 1 cup)
  • Tomatoes Cubed (about 1/2 cup)
  • Avocados Cubed (2 large avocados should do the trick)
  • Red Beards No. 8 Dry Rub
  • And of Course – Don’t forget the Red Beards Habanero hot sauce

Preparation:

  • Pan fry the ground beef in a large skillet, making sure that there aren’t any large chucks of meat.
  • While frying, add the minced onion and RedBeards No. 8 Dry Rub to taste.
  • I use about a shade less than a teaspoon of RedBeards No. 8 dry rub.
  • Once the meat is thoroughly cooked, set off to the side.
  • Turn the oven on to 250 degrees. This will keep the tacos nice and hot.
  • Prepare a cookie sheet or equivalent by layering paper towels on the bottom to soak up the vegetable oil from the tortillas.
  • In a large frying pan, cover the bottom with vegetable oil and place on medium heat.
  • Once the oil is at temperature, place a tortilla in the frying pan. Quickly flip
  • over and add a small amount of the meat mixture. Then fold the tortilla in half.
  • Fry the folded tortilla, flipping it until it starts to show golden brown spots on both sides.
  • Once the taco is cooked, place in the cookie sheet and add a generous
  • amount of shredded cheese to the inside. Continue until all of the meat mixture is used.
  • Cube the tomatoes, avocados, and shred the lettuce.
  • To serve, remove the tacos from the oven, add RedBeards Habanero hot sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and avocados.

Disfrutar (Enjoy) Gringos!
