Add to and then toss the one pound of cooked green beans
Tacho: (half taco, half nacho)
(You can go either more with the taco as the main focus or the other way
with nachos as the main focus)
Taco as the Framework or base of the recipe for a Tacho/Taco or Nacho combination:
Jalapeno pepper slices
Nacho cheese grated
Prepare the ground beef like you normally do, draining it well, then mixing
the needed amount of taco seasoning, but not too much spice.
Put the hot taco meat in the shell first then layer your favorite toppings.
Instead of grated cheddar cheese on top you may use melted nacho cheese from
Velveeta and rotel tomatoes mixed in with Jalepeno.
The next idea is to let the nacho be the main focus:
basically all you do is:
Nacho white or yellow corn tortilla chips as a base
Ground beef, lightly spiced with taco seasoning
Sprinkle ground cheddar cheese on top
Add diced white or vidalia onion and salsa
Fried Rolled Hamburgers
Grated American cheese
Diced white onions
Flatten hamburger with a rolling pin, just right. Not too thin, but just enough.
Sprinkle on spice, for example, pepper, salt and/or Canadian Steak Spice.
and sprinkle on the onions, cheese and a few jalepeno peppers if need be.
Roll the burger patty into a nice sausage shape full of goodness.
Pan fry this bad boy using it's own natural juices once done, just lay it on paper towels and then use a skewer to poke down the center and then you can dip it in any sauces you like.
It's like a sausage on a stick using hamburger instead of sausage and it's full of your favorite toppings you normally use to make a burger on a bun, but without the lettuce and the tomato.
*note: You can half way cook it, then drain it good, dip it in corn dog batter or tempura, and then deep fry the suckers for added calories.
Another way to do this is as follows:
Double Sirloin Burgers Topped With Provolone Cheese etc...
I like it like this:
2 ground sirloin beef patties topped with Portabella mushrooms sliced
and sautéed in butter, and add a slice of red onion and slice of Provolone cheese.
On a Ciabatta bun. use the dressing of your choice,
*none for me, you can if you want, maybe you can try thousand island dressing instead of mayo. Just a thought.
