    Chabear01's Note:

    I am posting this recipe, because so many friends and family have been bugging me over the many years to get it. Okay then finally at last here it is! For all those who have never been to my house for Greasy Taco prepared, this is a 4 napkin taco - We don't call em Greasy for nothing ya know. If you care to make these a bit lighter in the Calories (though I don't know how much it will help) use ground turkey instead. I like to use more shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped green onions, chopped cucumbers, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa on the side to allow people to really dress these babies up.

      Great way to make tacos! I love greasy tacos and have been deep frying my tortillas in the past. This is so much easier and adding the meat and cheese make them so much better. I'll be making my tacos this way from now on. Alas, I also forgot the parm. Thanks for sharing.
