Soft Tacos

Ground beef
Chili powder

Brown hamburger:  Break ground beef into small pieces and place large microwave dish.  Alternately cook and stir until meat is browned.  For my family, I usually cook 3 pounds of meat – more or less, depending on how hungry everyone is.

Prepare tortillas:  heat skillet on stove

3 C cold water
2 C flour of your choice
1 C cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
2 duck eggs

Mix all ingredients well.  Spoon batter (I use a soup ladle) onto hot skillet; tip pan to spread batter thin.  Flip to cook other side.

Prepare other ingredients:

Slice olives.  Actually, I put them all in my 2C pyrex measuring cut and use the kitchen shears to cut the olives into bits – this wouldn’t work if you want attractively prepared slices, but it works for my family.

Grate cheese – or buy it already grated.

Chop tomatoes – the key to this is a good, sharp knife

Shred lettuce – after washing, I usually tear the lettuce by hand


I place separate dishes of each ingredient on the table and let people assemble their own tacos.  Sprinkle with amount of chili powder desired.
