    Fast Crispy Tacos

    I have put up Mexican food before but the other night the kids and I made up tacos both beef and chicken and it was fast and easy. They had brought back 6 dozen corn tortillas and we were ready to get frying. Made up some salsa, and served with refried beans as well.

    First you have your beef and chicken cooked off with Mexican spices.



    Then you have to fold and fry at the same time, the kids got good at this.



    End up with something like this.


    we made 10 for the three of us.

    Looked like this when served. You have your salsa, lettuce, chips, chicken, beans and cheese and the taco shells. We hide the beef from the wife just to make life easier.



    A close up of a kids taco.



    The next day while I was at work they got hungry for Mexican again and made their own lunch, tacos and a quesadilla



    Nice job by 13 year olds, and now they are as addicted to Mexican food as I am. Hell they had friends and relatives help them "borrow" over 250 of the taco bell seasoning packets while they were home alone on holiday.

    Very good to see your children getting into the ol cooking thing , I allways used to love it , infact doing anything practical ,, I think I was about 12 when I was supervised by my Dad taking the head off his old Austin A40 removing the valves + springs + spending all weekend re seating the valves by hand into the head ,loved it . Had to wash the ol hands well before going home to make the scones for tea though
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Looks great, Aging. Thanks for sharing. Of all the foods I miss from back in the states, Mexican food is what I desire the most. I hope to make some guacamole and nachos with my students later this term. I'll have to find some tortilla nacho chips in BKK.

    Though it looks appealing and I'm sure your crunchy tacos are grand, AO....
    But soft tacos are the only way to go.

    CHEERS!

    Agreed. Bexar county born & raised & I don't comprehend shell tacos.
    However, AO's shells look pretty good, almost like a San Antonio puffy taco.
    What are puffy tacos? A San Antonio original, I've never seen 'em anywhere else:

    You guys I agree with the soft and thats the way we have always gone. But in the course of getting over 400 packets of taco bell sauce while on holiday they also discovered the old 4 pack of crispy beef tacos for 4 bucks. Never before had they eaten those.

    So for now they are crispy, I also have 5 dozen of the large fajitas style flour tortillas they brought back.

    This is my favorite taco.

    ^ Looks great as usual AO.

    Like your dessert of a sleeve of smokes and lighter at the ready for when you finish your dinner.

    The country you are in!! Its a special type of Taco. Cut off the spit the same a kebab. If you see it in the middle east its a shararma, in the UK a kebab, in Greece a gyro, but in mexico tacos Pastor. Pastor is the spit roasted pork, with pineapple.

    Shows just how little I know Sure tasty what ever they are called.

    Have seen them around where I live now but in a bar/restaurant that never has more than 2 or 3 customers a night so I worry about how old the meat is and it constantly being cooled / reheated.

    I'll wait for the odd trip to bangkok to satisfy my cravings.
