Crisp up your next taco night. Great Mexican recipe with a unique seasoning for the ground beef mixture. This is a recipe for fried tacos where seasoned and cooked ground beef are placed in tortillas, then pan fried and shaped.
Cook the ground beef in a skillet until brown and crumbly, stirring occasionally and breaking up with a wooden spoon. Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally until softened. Stir in the herbs and spices and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the tomato paste and stir well. Stir in the water as needed for consistency. Cover and cook on low for 10 minutes.
Place a little of the beef mixture on each corn tortilla and roll up. Secure with a wooden toothpick and fry quickly in a little oil until golden. For the flour tortillas, place beef mixture on half of the tortilla and fold over. Fry on each side until browned.
