This Instructable will teach you how to make really basic and easy to make tacos. I will teach you how to cook tacos with minced beef and any other vegetables that you would like to include on the dish. In these simple steps I will describe: how to prepare the meat, how to prepare the vegetables and any useful tips and how to put these in the taco shells.
For 4 servings, you will need: • 8 taco shells
• 500 g (17 oz) minced beef
• 4 tomatoes
• 1 onion
• any type of shredded cheese
Optional: • 500 g (17 oz) chicken
• 3 garlic cloves
• 150 g (5 oz) kidney beans
• 1 red paprika
• 2 shredded lettuce leaves
• 150 g (5 oz) corn
• 1 avocado
• 100 g (3 1/2 oz) salsa sauce
You can also add any other sauce or any kind of vegetables you would like on your tacos. Of course, you can also leave out any ingredients. For vegetarians, vegans or pescetarians it is recommended you replace the meats by adding other possible vegetables like lettuce, corn or avocado. You should simply experiment and just have fun with the preparation; try out tacos with the ingredients you'd like. Then, and only then, will you experience the true magic of tacos!
Step 1: Preparing the Meat
Cook for approx. 8 to 10 minutes on the stove at maximum temperature.
Step 2: Preparing the Vegetables
Tomatoes, onions and garlic can also already be added to the cooking meat. This will make the meat more sauce-like and keep your tacos from being too dry. But don't add all the vegetables and spices to the meat. Tacos that consist of one giant sauce in a taco shell is not as good.
Step 3: Preparing the Taco Shells
Step 4: Putting It All Together
And now: ¡Buen apetito!
Thank you very much for following my instructions. Enjoy your finished tacos and I hope you also had fun cooking them. If I have now awakened your love for this incredibly delicious dish and you want more challenging recipes, just look for any ordinary cook book or visit sites like allrecipes.co.uk, foodnetwork.com, bhg.com or bbc.co.uk. But of course there are many, many more.
Thank you and I hope you'll do me the honour of coming again soon.
