Quick and Easy Soft Corn Tortilla Beef Tacos in less than 20 minutes


Summer time means less time in the kitchen for many people.This is just a quick recipe recipe I threw together with what I had on hand. Bear in my mind I don't claim to be the voice of authenticity, but rather the voice of improvising and using whats on hand.That being said what does one do with frozen thin sliced Shabu Shabu style beef(from the butcher in Chinatown), onions, tomatillo sauce, and cheese? Make a taco! But if you have a few mouths to feed or even feed just one and have little time, this is a quick one for you.
Components:
Corn Tortillas
Sour Cream
Tomatillo Salsa
Cilantro
Beef or Chicken ( ground versions work well to0)
Onions
Queso Fresco
Spices( salt or salt free seasoning, pepper, chipotle,Chili powder, garlic,etc)
Pickled Jalapenos and Carrots
Brown your meat and onions in a lightly oiled skillet. Season to taste with salt, pepper, chipotle, etc. Set aside. Heat corn tortillas on each side in an ungreased skillet. Dress each tortilla with meat, cheese, sour cream, tomatillo, and cilantro. Garnish with lime.
* I made mine salt free with salt free seasonings blend. The lime and tomatillo add flavor as well).

oh heather... that girl cracks me up.

tacos should be quick and easy! i'd suggest skirt steak for upmost deliciousness. they need about 1 minute per side if you want it still med. rare in the middle. soooo good. i think i could eat a taco every day.
