I like to make Lunch Truck style tacos.. they are very easy, and a make a pound of hamburger go a long way. I like them much better than the Taco Bell. They are fast to prepare. Get a big pack of the soft corn tortillas.
I use Cilantro (a tangy herb that looks like parsley). tomatoes chopped up (Roma will do).. and season the meat with this:
– crushed red pepper.
– garlic/pepper mix.
– chile powder.
The meat’s not over the top, but it is not bland either. I squeeze a lime over the vegetables, sometimes the meat just before eating it. The corn tortilla is cooked in the same pan as the hamburger for 1 minute per side. You just soften and warm the tortilla. Cook up the meat, then put it in the center of the tortillas on a plate. Put as much cilantro and tomato n there as you want. Then, I top with some La Costena Green salsa. This salsa still has a pretty good kick. Of course you can use any salsa you like. Sometimes, the cheap mild salsa at the $1 aisle is good enough.
Making these tacos, a pound of hamburger goes a long way! I get about 12 tacos per pound. These are soft tacos, by the way. I calculate that it costs about 30 to 40 cents per taco, depending upon how much the pound of hamburger costs. You only need a bit of cilantro. I love the way this tangy herb spices up the taco. I bought the limes on sale next door, at Abbarotes Mi Familia, 20 for $1. To squeeze the lime juice on your tacos really “authenticates” the experience. These tacos are great, and I eat them all the time.
