This sounds really good. So I gather that you prepare your taco meat first, then layer that with beans and other ingredients, fold over and fry? And how long do you fry them for? Do the other ingredient get soggy?
Barbzy...this recipe sounds delicious! My daughter is somewhat a finiky eater sometimes, but I KNOW she would love this recipe. A big thank-you to you, and Debora18 for bringing us this yummy sounding recipe.
I wasn't subscribed to this thread so I didn't catch all the questions. lol Barb worded it perfectly, fry them over low heat until "melty."
Amanda, the other ingredients don't get soggy unless you add the tomatoes.
I have picky eaters in my house too! My DH and DD won't eat onions. My DD won't eat refried beans. She LOVES flips--so she says--but what are flips without refried beans? lol For me, I add the works! I am going to try them with jalapenos.
One suggestion that works for me is to make a large batch of the taco meat mixture. Put it in zip-loc baggies and freeze. Then, when you need a quick meal, you pull a meal's worth of meat out and make flips, tacos, or taco salad. Cook once and have mutliple meals.
