A spicy ground beef taco filling and shredded cheese form the stuffing for wheat flour tortillas that are fried until golden.

Ingredients

1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup diced tomatoes
4 large wheat tortillas
Oil for frying tortillas

Directions

1. Brown together ground beef, onion and garlic in a heavy frying pan over medium heat, stirring until meat loses its pinkness.

2. Add salt and chili powder, blending well.

3. Place 1/2 cup of the ground beef filling, 1/2 cup shredded cheese and 1/4 cup diced tomatoes onto one-half of each tortilla. Fold other half over fillling, pressing it down to remove any air pockets.

4. Pour oil into large skillet to 1/4-inch depth.

5. When oil is hot, place filled tortillas into pan a few at a time. Saute over medium to high heat until golden on each side, about 45 seconds per side.

6. Remove from pan onto paper toweling. Cut into wedges to serve.

Comments

For a hotter, more South-of-the-Border flavor, sprinkle diced Jalapeno peppers or green chiles into centers before folding and frying.
