Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 12
  • 1 lb ground beef, cooked
  • ½ onion, finely diced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, minced
  • 1-2 limes, quartered
  • corn tortillas, about 8" in diameter
  • butter and lard, or fat of choice
  • hot sauce or salsa
  1. In a medium skillet, cook ground beef, seasoning with salt and pepper. (Want it spicey? Add some chipotle chili powder. It's really good!)
  2. While beef is cooking, finely dice onions and mince cilantro.
  3. Quarter the limes.
  4. Heat griddle or pan over medium heat.
  5. Add butter and/or lard to your pan, and then gently cook (don't fry, or the taco shells become too crispy). You'll know the heat is right if the tortillas bubble and the fat foams around the edges.
  6. Top with cooked ground beef, onion, cilantro, a squeeze or two of lime and hot sauce or salsa.
  7. Serve immediately.
