Sante Fe Soft Tacos

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 705


1 pound ground beef
1 (7 1/2-ounce) can mild taco sauce
vegetable oil
8 corn tortillas 6 inch each
3 tablespoons onions chopped
1/2 cup tomato chopped
1 cup iceburg lettuce shredded iceberg
6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese finely shredded
1 (11-ounce) can mild enchilada sauce (optional)


In a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, sauté beef until lightly browned, breaking up meat drain off fat. Add taco sauce. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until meat is moist but no longer saucy.

Preheat oven to 350°. Pour oil into a small skillet to a depth of 1/4 inch. Heat over medium heat. Dip tortillas, one at a time, in hot oil for a few seconds just to soften. Drain on paper towels.

To assemble the tacos, on one half of each tortilla, layer in order one-eighth each of the ground beef mixture, onion, tomato, lettuce and 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling. In a 12 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish, arrange tacos, slightly overlapping.

Pour enchilada sauce over the tacos if desired. Sprinkle with remaining cheese cover with foil and bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese melts.
