Today’s recipe was a repeat with a twist!
Only frying the tortilla and using ground beef. I wanted the crispy crunch from the tortilla but I didn’t want to eat something drenched in oil. The husband approved.
We are trying to eat better. I love food, but I am discovering I gain weight easily now as an adult…I miss the younger days…
I forgot I already used up all the tortillas…so I have to section some off so they defrost faster. Now it is definitely a good thing I am frying them or they would be super soggy. 😣
Normally I would probably add some oil, but instead I just went with what I had. It should be fine.
At this point I decided to add to my cooking preparation. Salsa. Homemade! I found a recipe a while ago and it was a big hit with the hubby and Eli! And me. But no one really cares. Haha 😂
We have a large food processor; I got it as a Christmas present. But sadly I never want to use it because I would rather not have more dishes. I know that is stupid and lazy, but I am that way occasionally.
So for the meat, I will say I did drain off all the excess fat off the meat. I didn’t want any extra calories. So didn’t add the spices and chilies until after.
The chips are just fried. I didn’t add any salt or lime juice. I wanted them to be a vessel for the salsa.
I was not about to fight the battle today. If she would eat…she ate some of daddy’s breakfast, all of her own, a big serving of Alfredo noodles, and some cookies today so far.
Back to the cooking. Now I know why to add more oil.
Because after I finished the chips I only had a thin layer of oil covering the bottom of the pot. Not good. Could have burned the pot…
The thought was…to cover the tortilla with the amount of sour cream you would normally top your taco. But let’s be honest. That dollup is huge…! I used way too much. Did I wipe the excess…no. I did that throughout the recipe but not now. Makes no sense.
It was delicious. We had planned to eat it flat like that, but as soon as we picked it up, it folded into a taco.
It is not really a recipe I can score. Since it was a mash up of ideas.
