Taco night, we like them with Flour tortillas, and with White Corn Tortillas, both lightly fried.

We use ground beef seasoned with salt, onion and cumin to taste, then drained.
Then add peas - it's just something that my family has done since forever - optional
Lettuce - sliced to a thin shred
Diced fresh tomato
Shredded Cheese
and Spicey Salsa

The flour tortillas are the "gorditas" style from your local store, and are gently folded and held with tongs when lowered into an inch of hot oil. They will puff up while frying, it's ok! When browned on both sides, set each one, inverted like a tent, on some paper towels to drain off any excess oil. These are very filling!
The White Corn Tortillas are lightly fried on both sides, but should still be soft. Blot with paper towels to remove an excess oil before serving. Then fill them with what you like.

Eat anything, but if it bites back, boil it.

They look and sound great. I usually season my ground beef after I drain the fat off though, because the fats would essentially absorb all the flavor. I even add a bit of water and cornstarch to help make a sauce that would trap the flavors after draining them.
