    knobbyknee's Note:

    I use the Top Secret Recipe cookbooks and have found the Taco Bell Beef Soft Tacos taste pretty close, enough that we don't go there anymore! I use this meat for crunchy homemade tacos as well. This recipe calls for fat-free flour tortillas, and cheese. I have made them both ways-fat full and fat free.

    1. 1
      In a medium bowl combine the uncooked ground beef with flour and all the spices. Use your hands to throroughly incorporate everything into the ground beef.
    2. 2
      Preheat skillet over medium heat and add the beef mixture to the pan along with the water. Brown the beef for about 5-6 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat as it cooks.
    3. 3
      You could heat up the tortillas a bit in the microwave by wrapping them in a moist cloth or paper towels. Heat for about 25 seconds.
    4. 4
      Spoon 3 tablespoons of meat into center of tortilla. Place about 2 tablespoons of the shredded lettuce ontop.

      Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon cheese over lettuce.

      Very good but will add more spice next time, either red pepper flakes or cayenne. Used to fill Fresh, Fried & Spicy Soft Tacos.

      Instead of raw beef I used 1 lb of precooked meat (All Purpose Ground Meat Mix) that I had already defrosted. I doubled the flour and tripled the rest of the ingredients and it came out great. Thanks!
