How to make it

  • 1. Peel, cut potatoes and boil. Once cooked, chop into small pieces about 3/8 inch. Set aside.
  • 2. Cut head lettuce in half. Using sharp knife shave lettuce as thin as possible. Once cut into strips, cut into 1 inch long pieces. Set aside.
  • 3. In a deep pot add 1 cup water then add hamburger breaking it up as added. As hamburger cooks use a wisk to stir breaking up hamburger into BB size pieces. Let hamburger cook. Once cooked, drain.
  • 4. Once drained place in a large fry pan. Add 1 1/2 cups water. Add salt, pepper, granulated garlic and mix well. Add chopped onions, chilies, green pepper, stir and mix well. Allow to cook 10 minutes on medium high.
  • 5. Add potato, stirring and mixing well.
  • 6. Add lettuce, stirring and mixing well. Add another cup of water, mixing well and allow to cook 10 minutes. .
  • 7. To cook tortillas barely rinse one side under water. Place on a Styrofoam plate and microwave 12 seconds (1300 watts).
  • 8. Add meat and sauce and roll up. You have to hold one end pinched closed so it doesn’t fall out.
  • 9. For a variation add shaved lettuce on meat and sauce.
  • 10. The taco best suits thin sauce. I pour out half of the sauce and then add water and shake.

    Sounds really good, but I didn't see the granulated garlic in the directions, only in the ingredient list. When do I add that?

    This looks really good...Mexican comfort food...meat and potatoes! Love the corn tortillas...usually nuke tortillas in a very damp paper towel to soften. Bookmarking!

    Hi there - we had our dinner party which was a big success. We had 8 women and a good time was had by all. The girls loved the tacos. I am use to the taco seasoning taste and it look me a couple of bites to really appreciate the tacos. But it was a big hit. Most of the girls said they liked to fix their tacos that way. I am going to use flour tortillas next time.

    But thanks and wanted to thank you as it was a good conversation piece to discuss how the tacos were made and where the recipe came from.

    Hello, we're making your tacos on Thuraday night. Sweet stuff and I are hosting a dinner party for women here at my house. I am sure the girls will love them.

    My mouth is watering right now.

    Hey gold - what a recipe. I just love it. Good job. I love the way the recipe reads. Our state fair is in Little Rock Arkansas. Don't know if they have these kinds of taco but I sure will check. I'll make some for me and the husband. We are both mexican food lovers.

    Thanks - Elena Justlearningtocook

    The stand is always in the same location. It says "soft tacos" and they cost about $2.25. I will be there to buy them also. Every year. Good for you. JJ
