Big Daddy’s World Famous Tacos

In honor of Taco Tuesday  (on Twitter), I decided to attempt Kyle’s World Famous Tacos this evening. This recipe makes A LOT of tacos, but you can pare it down a bit if needed. Once again, this recipe is for the picky eater. That would be Umi.

Here’s what I used:

2 packages of 18 count taco shells (I actually had 3 shells leftover after this)

3lbs of hamburger (85% lean at least, and I’m curious how turkey would substitute – let me know if you try it)

Garlic powder or salt

Onion powder or salt

Italian seasoning (yes, that’s correct)

Lettuce (shredded)

Cheese (shredded)

Brown the hamburger in a large frying pan.

As the hamburger browns, sprinkle the seasonings over it to taste. I did this twice. Once it’s fully cooked, drain grease and set oven temperature to 350 degrees. Shred the lettuce.

Line taco shells up in a 13×9 baking dish. I had to use two of them, plus a 9×9 dish.

Adda spoonful of meat to each shell.

Add lettuce to each shell.

Add cheese to  each shell.

Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted.

That’s it. You’re done! Let Taco Tuesday begin!

You can top the taco with a spoonful of salsa or picante sauce. Your choice. I eat them plain. =)

Got something to say? Jot it down.
