Out of a failed 3 year relationship with a Mexican man, I took something worthwhile! The knowledge of how to make a REAL taco. This is the favorite meal of my husband and me.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef with garlic salt and drain.
  2. Heat a griddle or large skillet on high.
  3. Lightly coat tortillas with extra virgin olive oil.
  4. Lightly fry tortillas so that they are still flexible, but slightly browned.
  5. Drain tortillas on paper towels.
  6. Put one spoonful of ground beef on each tortilla, top with serranos, onion, tomato, cilantro, avocado, lime juice and salt. Enjoy!

Yep...pretty authentic. The avocado, cilantro and lime are a must. Similar to what I've eaten in Juarez. Easy to make too!

I made these over the weekend for dinner and we liked them but I think we are too used to "Americanized" tacos. I did leave out the cilantro due to personal preference and subbed in some fresh parsley but otherwise made as posted. I do like the addition of a slice of avocado so I am going to try that on the tacos I regularly make. I am really glad I tried these. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
