Central American Tacos
5 large potatoes, cubed 1 pound lean ground beef 1/2 onion, chopped salt and pepper to taste
4 tomatillos, husked and quartered 1 clove garlic, peeled 1 jalapeno chile pepper, diced 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste 3 avocados, halved with pits removed
10 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1. Place potatoes into a large saucepan, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain. 2. While the potatoes are cooking, crumble the ground beef into a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for a few minutes, then stir in the onion. Cook until meat is no longer pink, and the onion is tender. Drain excess grease, and gently stir in the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 3. Place the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeno, and cilantro into a blender. Squeeze avocados out of their skins into the blender. Process until smooth. 4. Heat tortillas in a skillet until warm and flexible. Spoon on some of the meat mixture, and top with the sauce. Roll up, and enjoy. Printed from Allrecipes.com 10/15/2008
I am signed up for Allrecipes, I really like the way you can choose metric or USA measurements. Must be a very well thought out, complicated spread sheet. Maybe some computer hot shot could come up with one we could all use?
Tacos is another one of those dishes that Scottish older men are not into. Just realised they don't like food that they have to put together, they want it on a plate, a big plate.
It's not something that can be made for just one, unfortunately.
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!

We have tacos here at home occasionally. Hubby likes them as much as I do! Our Moose Lodge serves tacos every Fri. night, too. This recipe sounds a little like a breakfast burrito, except for the hard shell corn tortillas. I will try them soon!
