Crazy Fried Tacos

I'll preface this entry by saying: I know this sounds weird and unhealthy. It may be both of those things. It's also delicious.

Brown 2 pounds of ground beef (You can cook some chopped onion in here if you want, or season with cumin)
Make a big old bowl of mashed potatoes
Mix together the mashed potatoes and ground beef.

Put 2-3 Tablespoons of the mixture in a flour or corn tortilla and fry in hot oil. I prefer to deep fry it, myself. I fry it until the corn tortilla has 'cooked' and become a little crispy.

When you remove the friend taco from the oil I recommend standing it on end in a heat-resistant strainer to let the excess oil run out. I choose to sprinkle them with salt now.

My current favorite way to fry is to put the mixture in a corn tortilla and wrap a flour tortilla around the corn tortilla before frying. I'll add pictures next time I make some.

(I think these are best sprinkled with salt and dipped in sour cream.)

I know they sound odd, but I've never had anyone eat them and not crave them again later.

  1. Wow! When you make them again, do take pictures. Potatoes?
    We love tex mex so I just may try it.

  2. I bet these are really good. I would never have thought of that combination, but how can you go wrong with those ingredients?
