  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups Oaxaca cheese*
  • 15 corn tortillas


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, stirring frequently. When the beef has browned, drain the extra grease.
  2. Add the taco seasoning and water to the pan with the beef. Stir well. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat to low and simmer for 8 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  3. Shred the cheese and heat a clean frying pan or comal over high heat. Coat the bottom with a thin layer of oil.
  4. Working in batches, warm 2 or 3 tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds.
  5. Reduce the stove heat to medium and place the open tortillas on the frying pan or comal. On one half of each tortilla layer with 1 tablespoon of cheese, then 2 to 3 tablespoons of beef filling, followed by 1 more tablespoon of cheese. If using more fillings, add them with the beef.
  6. Pan fry for 1 minute before gently folding the tortilla over to close the taco. Cook for 2 minutes, then flip and cook 2 to 3 more minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove fried tacos from the skillet to a paper towel lined plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm while preparing the remaining tacos.


* Cheese may be omitted, if desired.
