Tonight we had tacos, a quick and easy meal that I whipped it in less than 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350
Add to the bottom of a baking pan one can of re-fried beans (optional), pour a couple drops of Taco Sauce; spicy or non-spicy it’s your preference. I sprinkle it in three or four spots. Add on a layer of Mexican blend cheese covering the re-fried beans.
Heat up a frying pan add a small amount of olive oil less than one Tablespoon, add one chopped garlic clove saute, add chop meat 1 lb. of sirloin lean. Brown chop meat season with a pinch of salt, 1 Tablespoon of cumin, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, (optional items that also can be added are a chopped jalapeno pepper, and or cayenne pepper.) I kept it mild this evening. Once chop meat is fully cooked, I drain all the liquid that has accumulated and set to the side. At this point, the baking pan goes into the oven to warm the re-fried beans and melt the cheese.
I chopped 3 Roma or plum tomatoes, half of a head of lettuce. Take out baking pan out of the oven add the chop meat, some more Taco Sauce, more cheese…place it in the oven once again.
Wrap soft tortillas in damp paper towels, and microwave for about 30 second intervals 2 times.
Please note; I did not, or would ever consider microwaving the tortillas in the plastic container above. I wrapped them in a damp paper towel, placed them on a paper plate, and zapped.
Assembling is easy. Take the baking pan out of the oven layer the lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, and olives. Serve with my favorite salad; Tomato and Avocado salad, and a large spoon to scoop from the bottom- for vegetarians leave out the chop meat.
Tip: If you only have one really almost dry lime in your basket, (because someone did not buy any last week) place in microwave for 20 to 30 seconds- the heat makes it quite juicy and enough to squeeze over the salad.
Sorry with the quality of photos, camera acting weird I took these with my IPad.
