Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup cotija cheese
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 20 corn tortillas
  • cooking oil

Instructions
 

  • Mix together the ground beef, cotija cheese and taco seasoning.
  • Place 1-1/2 tablespoons of the uncooked meat mixture on one side of the corn tortilla.
  • Use a piece of plastic wrap to press it out evenly on one side in a half moon shape.
  • All the tortillas will be done this way.
  • Heat oil 1/4-1/2 inch deep in a skillet to med-hot. Enough to fry but not submerge the tortilla.
  • Place the tortilla unfolded into the skillet, and after a few seconds the tortilla will soften.
  • Fold the half of the tortilla without the meat over to cover the meat, and press down lightly with a spatula.
  • As it crisps up, turn it over and cook the other side until golden and crisp. Your meat should be cooked thoroughly in this time (it was very thin).
  • Drain on paper toweling.
  • Serve with salsa dip, or top with things like salsa, pico de gallo, sour cream, guacamole, chopped onion, tomato or cilantro. Your choice.
