Taco's anyone

OK!  So We love Tacos in my family.  My grandma has handed down her family recipe of taco's and my family loves them.  In fact when my mother was growing up Friday night was taco night at the Hartline's.  My grandmother would make them every Friday.  My mom didn't make them weekly but we had them often enough that it became a favorite of mine.  Well I make them at least once a month and sometimes twice.  Love them.   I made them last night, so I will share the recipe with you.

Fried Tacos

Corn Tortillas  I usually get package of 30
3 Lbs ground beef
1 medium potato graded
2  - 3 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp thyme
1 4 oz can tomato sauce

OK so in a large pot put all the ground beef, vinegar, tomato sauce, thyme, and graded potato. stir together.  cook at med heat till done.   stirring occasionally.  Heat 3 to 4 tbsp of oil in cast iron skillet.  Scoop meat into tortilla and fry on both side, Like this.  It splatters and makes a big mess so be warned protect your self and don't let the kids stand close.  Them meat when it touches the oil spits oil everywhere and man it hurts.   

Makes about 30.  add lettuce, cheese, tomatoes etc.  whatever you like on your taco's and enjoy.
