Mexico Style Tacos

From the Kitchen of: Melissa

Hamburger meat
Shredded Cheese of choice
Chopped Onion
Chopped Tomatoes
Chopped Cilantro
Salsa Verde (see picture below)
2-3 Fresh Whole Limes
Corn Tortilla
Cooking Oil

In a medium skillet heat cooking oil on medium heat

In another skillet cook hamburger (season to taste, drain when done)

While the oil is heating up and the hamburger is cooking, you can chop up onions, tomatoes, cilantro and cut limes in 4 slices so you can squeeze the juice out of them (don't juice them now!) Once all times are cut put each in a small bowl, also put the cheese and salsa verde in a small bowl.

Hamburger should still be cooking. At this time the oil should be hot. Place a corn tortilla in the oil for about 20 seconds, flip over and place on a plate, top with a napkin (to drain the oil) repeat as many times as necessary. (We normally eat 3-5 tacos each because the tortillas we buy are really small)

Once hamburger and tortilla are done, top with items in small bowl and squeeze lime juice on top of them. ENJOY!!!

This is the salsa verde - I get it at WinCo for $0.84! There are different types of it but I think this one has the best taste, so it's important to get the right kind. It's too much for just these tacos, so you can use the extra sauce in the enchiladas recipe below or you can grill/fry some pork chops and top with salsa verde and squeeze lime juice on top!
