What To Do With a Mountain of Taco Meat? Taco Fries!
That's right, taco fries. Like chili fries, but with taco meat. Some red onion, cheddar cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro, a little lettuce to make it healthy and... yeah. It's awesome. I'll be making it again and again. Probably fairly soon. Heh, see, I made two and a quarter pounds of taco meat the other day. I had this big chunk of frozen beef and didn't feel like dealing with hacking at it to get a more reasonable amount, so I just did it up. I still have one and a half pounds or so that I didn't finish in the freezer. I made burritos with it too, I'll post about those some other time. I'll probably make a casserole as well, taco casserole is a good time. I'd give you guys the recipe, but I didn't really have one. One thing I did though is I used about a half a cup of chicken stock in it. That gave it some richness without fat, it was really good. I also used a small can of tomato sauce, garlic, cilantro, cumin, paprika, chili powder. You know, Mexican style stuff. I think there was more in there too, but I really can't remember. Some day I'll do it with just one pound and get measurements so I can post it for real. Anyway, I strongly suggest you do it with your favorite taco meat recipe.
