I grew up making tacos with my mom. The way I make them now is a hybrid of my childhood tacos, which I still love, but they are probably a heart attack in a tortilla, waiting to happen! We used ground beef, mixed it with all the same ingredients I utilize in my current day recipe, but then made patties that we laid in the tortillas. Next, you put the whole shebang in the hot oil and fried the meat right into the tortilla. My husband refers to them as “slab tacos”. I know. But they are insanely delicious!
