the only taco recipe i have is my Dad's homemade recipe and it's so good! :)

brown 1 pound of ground beef and dump the meat into a colander to drain the grease (i like to rinse the meat under water while it's still in the colander but you don't have to)

wipe the excess grease from the frying pan with a paper towel then put the meat back into the pan

add salt and pepper to the meat

(you should already have 2-3 jalapenos diced to add to the meat after salting and peppering)

add the jalapenos and let simmer for a couple of minutes to tenderized the jalapenos! ;)

then you put enough chili powder over the meat to cover all of the top of the meat nicely

mix it up real good then add a half an 8oz. can of tomato sauce to the meat and let it simmer so the sauce cooks into the meat! you can add more sauce if you want to but you don't have to

personally i think it's best to fry up some soft corn tortillas and just add sharp cheddar shredded cheese but hey, what you add to your tacos is your business! i just want you to enjoy your tacos either way! :D

oh yeah! things you'll need duh! :blush:

1 pound of ground beef
salt
pepper
chili powder
4oz. tomato sauce (can use more if you want to)
2-3 jalapenos (can use more if you want to)
frying pan
colander (the big bowl with the holes in it)
cheese
tortillas
paper towels
stove
electricity
:P

also i want to try out some of your homemade tacos too so post some recipes for me if you want to but you don't have to! :love:

ill do shredded chicken/pork/beef in the crock pot, set it in the morning before you go to work and have it for dinner, or set it up at night let it cook and put it in the fridge in the morning

ill also do steak (asada) and i have a local mexican market that sells tripas and ill fry that up


also, your missing toppings lol

onions, cilantro, salsa, guac, pico de gallo


also im more of a soft traditional street taco tortilla fan than a crunchy shell, but both or good

Don't have chili powder, think I can make due with just cayenne powder?

Cayenne pepper is a specific chili that's been dried and ground. Chilli powder is a blend of things like garlic powder, paprika, various chilis, onion powder etc etc.

On top of that cayenne pepper is very spicy, so it really won't taste the same at all.

what kinds of spices and marinades do you use on you chicken? i love chicken tacos! :D

on my Dad's tacos i just like meat and cheese cuz that's the way he made them but on some chicken tacos i'd add some shredded lettuce and salsa! :drool:

i hope you like my Dad's tacos! and yes chili powder is a must! the jalapenos already give them a nice kick but if you like really spicy food then you can add some cayenne pepper! :)

Cumin would work as a suitable replacement here, mixed as 1:1 with the cayenne
