My Dad's Famous Taco's

My dad can whip up some majorly "Mean" tacos! And when I say "Mean" I mean amazing! They are so simple and so good that they always have you asking for seconds! 

I don't know if I have ever mentioned, but my dad, well he's a pretty good cook! And I'm not just saying that because he is my dad. He really can cook! He is one of the best BBQ'ers that I have ever met. He can make the best smoked ribs, amazing steaks, chicken n dumplings, and well, these tacos! 

One thing that I love about these tacos, is that they don't require a ton of different spices and seasonings, yet they are so fresh and flavorful, that like I said before, you will definitely, be asking for seconds!

1 pound ground beef (I used 93/7)
1 head of iceberg lettuce (washed and chopped)
3-4 Roma Tomato's
1/2 of a red onion (diced)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
Salt and Pepper
10-12 Corn Tortillas
Olive Oil

Place the ground beef, garlic and salt and pepper into a large saute pan. Cook over medium heat till the meat is no longer pink (about 5-8 minutes).  Then wash and slice all of the vegetables and set aside.

When the meat is done cooking, drain any excess fat and quickly wash the pan. (You will use this pan to heat up your tortillas)  Now in a large bowl, combine the meat, vegetables, and cheese and toss together till it is all well combined.  

Now drizzle about 1 Tbsp. of olive oil into your saute pan.  Place 1-2 tortillas into your pan and let them heat up over low-medium heat.  (you will need to add olive oil in between cooking each tortilla) When you flip the tortilla over lightly salt one side of the tortilla. (this just gives it an added touch of flavor).  Place about 2-3 Tbsp of your meat/veggie mixture into each tortilla. Top off with your favorite hot sauce and Enjoy!
