    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    This recipe was given over the radio in the 1950s by the owner of Jordan's Mexican Restaurant, a venerable old eating establishment here in Phoenix. Jordan's did not sell these; they were home food for the family. These are really different tacos, but delish. Note the salad variation at the end.
