Soft Tacos

  • Tortillas
  • Ground beef
  • Cheese
  • Olives
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • Chili powder

Brown hamburger:  Break ground beef into small pieces and place in a large microwave dish.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is cooked.  An alternate method is to cook and stir in a frying pan on the stovetop until meat is browned.

For my family, I usually cook 3 pounds of meat – more or less, depending on how hungry everyone is.

Prepare tortillas:  heat skillet on stove

  • 3 C cold water
  • 2 C flour of your choice
  • 1 C cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 duck eggs

Mix all ingredients well.  Spoon batter (I use a soup ladle) onto hot skillet; tip pan to spread batter thin.  Flip to cook other side.

Prepare other ingredients:

Slice olives.  Actually, I put them all in my 2C pyrex measuring cut and use the kitchen shears to cut the olives into bits – this wouldn’t work if you want attractively prepared slices, but it works for my family.

Grate cheese – or buy it already grated.

Chop tomatoes – the key to this is a good, sharp knife

Shred lettuce – after washing, I usually tear the lettuce by hand

Place separate dishes of each ingredient on the table and let people assemble their own tacos.  Sprinkle with amount of chili powder desired.
