RE: Home Made Tacos/Banquet
Okay Bill, I guess I am un-American... I was born in the Republic of Texas. I still want ideas about steaming. I like Buddy Dek's idea, with the food processor. That makes me think about using the finely chopped beef atop nachos, too, or in some kind of beefy brown enchilada sauce. The food processor could mix in a little potato, too. Not too much. Also, for flavors that you might want to play with for variety, try roasted serranos, chipotles, maybe even toasted pine nuts, black olive, whatever. I do want to try some of that crumbly white Mexican cheese, instead of plain cheddar. Also, the processor would make mixing in garlic automatic. Then, after all the mixing, put everything in a pan with some beef broth, and simmer further. If I get a recipe together I like, I'll just make large batches and freeze small containers for later.
I forgot to mention the Banquet frozen dinners, Cheese Enchiladas, Beef Enchiladas, the sauce is not bad! Spicier than you might think, super easy to deal with when you are feeling lazy, easy to fix up a little bit, and dirt cheap, 4 for $5 where I buy them. Good for a rainy day. When I'm broke, I know I've got those guys in the freezer, I stock up when I'm not broke.
