Tacos

We had tacos and guacamole the other night for dinner. Mexican is my FAVORITE food!!!!! Always has been, always will be!! :)

All you need:
Flour Tortillas
Meat (we used Elk)
Taco Seasoning
Chips (and/or Pita chips)
Lettuce
Cheese
Tomato
*Avocado
*Garlic Powder
*Salt
*Lemon Juice
(*Used for Guacamole)


Defrost your meat. You can do it either in the microwave or in really hot water. I don't like defrosting in the microwave because the edges start to cook and depending on what you're making (like burgers) it's really hard to work with the cooked parts and you ended up tossing them. So right when I get home from work we'll throw the meat into a sink full of really really hot water. (The hottest that the faucet puts out.) Then about 30 plus minutes later (depending on how much meat you're defrosting) the meat is mostly ready to be put into the frying pan.

Brown your meat:
When using game (Elk, Deer, Antelope, Bear) we highly recommend NOT draining the fat. If you do, then the meat will end of being too dry. If you're using cow or something store bought, then yes drain the meat......


Add the Taco Seasoning:
Follow the directions on what ever seasoning packet you got. We've tried several different kinds and this one wasn't bad.




Once everything is mixed in, place a lid over the meat and let is simmer until the water has evaporated and all the seasoning is now soaked into the meat.

This is a great time to start cutting up all your toppings.

Our favorite toppings are shown below, but we have also added sour creams, guacamole, fried beans (or what ever type of bean you like)



The Final Product...
