Skillets
2 lbs. ground beef
12 corn tortillas
1 cup sour cream
fresh, pico de gallo style salsas
1 tbsp. salt
1 lg. onions - peeled and finely chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup canola oil (for frying)
1/2 lb. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
3 plum tomatoes - roughly chopped

PREPARATIONS :
  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Heat the beef, salt and onions in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until the beef is browned completely.
  • Sprinkle a few drops of water on each tortilla and place in one stack. Wrap the stack in foil and put in the oven.
  • Remove the beef and onions to a plate lined with paper towels. Remove the tortillas from the oven when they are hot.
  • Heat the oil in a small saut√© pan over high heat.
  • Put a tortilla on a large plate and place 3 tbsp. beef mixture in a thick line across the middle. Leave about 1/2 inch of space between the ends of the line and the edges of the tortilla.
  • Take the edges of the tortilla opposite the line of beef and bring them together. Grasp the edges with a pair of tongs and lower the folded part of the tortilla into the oil.
  • When the folded part is firm and crisp, lower one side of the tortilla and then the other into the oil until the whole tortilla is crisp. Put some cheese inside each finished taco, then place in an ovenproof dish lined with paper towels and keep warm in the oven until all the tacos are done.
  • Put some lettuce, tomato, sour cream and salsa inside of each taco.
