Ground Beef Filling
Salad oil
12 corn tortillas

Prepare Ground Beef Filling and keep warm.

Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch into a wide frying pan and heat to
350F on a deep-frying thermometer. When oil is hot, add a tortilla
and cook until soft (about 10 seconds). Using tongs, fold in half;
hold slightly open and continue to cook, turning once, until crisp
(about 1 more minute). Repeat for remaining tortillas, adding more
oil sa necessary. Drain on paper towels.

Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of the filling into each taco shell.
Offer garnishes to spoon on individual servings.

turkey) into a wide-frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1
medium-sized onion, chopped, and 2 cloves (or more) of chopped
garlic. Cook, stirring often, until meat is browned and vegetables
are soft (about 10 minutes). Pour off fat.

Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon paprika, 1
teaspoon ground cumin, 1/2 cup Mild Chile Sauce or canned tomato
sauce and 2 teaspoons Worcestershire. Simmer until thickened (about
5 minutes).
