Ingredients to make Mexican Beef Tacos:

- 100 grams of cooked ground beef (beef and pork) (about 3.5 lb) or chicken breast
- 2 lettuce leaves
- 1 tomato

How to make Mexican Beef Tacos:
- To eat some delicious Mexican tacos, the first thing we must do is to make the dough for the tortillas. Then, mix the flour with the Water and knead.
- The correct proportion is one and a half cups of Water for every two cups of flour, although a little more Water may be required depending on the type of flour we use.
- Knead until you get a homogeneous and smooth dough. Make medium-sized balls and flatten with a rolling pin or griddle, leaving circular tortillas with a thickness of approximately 1 cm.
- To cook the tortillas, place them on the hot griddle or frying pan and turn them every 30 seconds, at least 3 times, until golden brown. Remove and place on a napkin.
- Before assembling the Mexican tacos, we must have the ground beef ready. In this case, we have browned it seasoning it with chives, garlic, and spices.
- We must also prepare the lettuce and tomato salad with basil, salt, pepper, vinegar, oil, mustard, and a touch of sugar.
- To assemble our Mexican beef tacos, spread the tortilla, place the meat, the salad and finish with a good portion of grated cheese.
- You can also serve with a little pico de gallo or make more varieties of tacos, such as the famous tacos al pastor. Enjoy!
