Jack-In-The-Box Taco

Cuisine: Tex-Mex
Type: Vegetables
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozGround beef
1/3 cup 53g / 1.9ozRefried beans
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSalt
2 tablespoons 30mlChili powder
1/4 cup 59mlOrtega or pico pica mild - taco sauce
12   Soft corn tortillas
3 cups 711mlCooking oil - Crisco brand
6   American cheese
1   Lettuce - chop fine

Recipe Instructions

Slowly brown the beef over low heat, using a wooden spoon to chop and stir the meat, keeping it very fine and smooth. When the beef is brown drain the fat. Add the refried beans and use the wooden spoon to smash the whole beans into the mixture creating a smooth texture.

Add the salt chili powder and 2 T of the taco sauce to the mixture. Remove from the heat. In another skillet heat 1/4 inch of oil until hot. test with a small piece of tortilla-it should bubble when dropped into the oil.

Spread 1/2 of the beef mixture on the center of each corn tortilla. Fold the tortillas over and press so that the beef filling acts as an adhesive and holds the sides together. Drop each taco into the pan of hot oil and fry on both sides until crispy. When cooked remove the tacos from the oil and place them on a rack or some paper towels until they are a little cooler.

PRY open slightly add 1/2 slice American cheese and some lettuce. top with about 1/2 tsp of the remaining taco sauce.
