Kit Includes: 1 lb ground beef, taco seasoning, corn tortillas, queso fresco, chopped cilantro & onions, salsa roja, refried beans
Heat a large sauté pan over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, then add ground beef and flatten into a thin layer, spread across entire cooking surface. Season generously with salt and taco seasoning, and cook undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, until beef is well caramelized on the bottom. Break up meat and continue to cook for another 2-4 minutes, until just cooked through. Add 1 cup water to pan and cook another 3-5
minutes, until it creates a thick sauce.
Add refried beans to a small pot over medium-low heat, and cook, stirring frequently, until hot and bubbly.
Meanwhile, heat tortillas. There are a couple of ways to do this:
- In the microwave- remove the desired amount of tortillas from the package, wrap in a paper towel and place on a microwave safe plate, and cook in intervals of 30 seconds until tortillas are warm and steamy
- In the oven/toaster oven- remove desired amount of tortillas from package and wrap in aluminum foil. Bake at 375F for 5-10 minutes, until tortillas are warm and steamy
- Stove top- remove desired amount of tortillas from package, and toast gently over open flame, turning frequently to prevent burning, about 15-20 seconds per side.
Serve warmed tortillas with beans, cooked beef, and additional garnishes on the side.
