Taco-Bout Mexican Food!
The PtC Corps members ate lunch at Mi-Vida and learned about traditional Mexican dishes. The fan favorite of the group was tacos. Here's a quick recipe for making tacos at home from Mission Foods!
6 Soft Taco Flour Tortillas, warmed
1 ¼ lbs Ground beef
1 Taco seasoning mix
½ Cup Water
¾ cup Packaged iceberg lettuce, shredded
¾ cup Pico de Gallo, prepared
¾ cup Shredded pepper jack cheese
Step 1 Heat a non-stick, medium size sauté pan over medium-high heat; on the stove top. Place raw ground beef into pan and brown (approximately 5 minutes); then drain. Place drained cooked beef back into the non-stick sauté pan, add taco seasoning and water. Continue to cook until water is gone and beef is thoroughly mixed with seasoning. Reserve warm.
Step 2 Fill each tortilla with approximately ¼ cup of reserved taco meat, top with 1 tablespoon of lettuce, 1 tablespoon of pico de gallo and 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese.
