How to make it
- In a large frying pan, break up hamburger, cooking over a medium or medium high heat. Chop up the meat with a rubber spatula.
- Add 1/4 cup of water. This gets the meat cooking and help draw out the grease.
- Once it looks like it is thoroughly cooked, drain through a strainer that is sitting on a large paper plate. Let it drain about two minutes and them pick of the strainer and let the rest of the grease drip out.
- Return to pan, and 1/2 cup water, stir, add taco season mixture, and stir well.
- Cooking over medium heat, stir and cook until water is about gone.
- Turn burner to cool.
- Separate how many tortillas for each person and the rest are cut up with scissors for chips.
- Heat up smaller pan with about 3/8 inch oil, medium temp and start dropping in cut up to tortilla chips. Turn about 4 times, when golden brown, place on paper towel, gently bloat with towels, sprinkle salt immediately. Continue until all chips cooked.
- To make soft tortilla for tacos, with oil fairly hot, lay tortilla in oil, carefully press center down, wait about 5 seconds, and turn over. Another 5 seconds, remove, let oil drip off, Place on clean paper towel and bloat with paper towel to get extra grease.
- Cook all that are to be soft (rest of package)
- Place on plate and spread on sour cream, then a couple of spoon fills of meat.
- Pour a little red and green on the meat.
- Now layer on some thinly shaved lettuce, next avocado, salt and pepper the avocado slices.
- Add tomatoes slices, salt and pepper. Pour more red and green sauce over tomatoes and avocados. Top with grated cheese.
- Fold tortilla over and pinch one end so it doesn't push out. Recommend 3-4 large paper towels. Way fun to eat and I personally like the layering as I get the flavors and textures at the right time. JJ
