  • 12 Corn tortillas
  • 3 cups of cooked and shredded beef
  • 2 cups of refried beans
  • ¼ cup Vegetable oil to lightly fry the tortillas

For the Garnish:

  • 3 cups of shredded green cabbage
  • 1 ½ cup tomato sliced
  • ½ cup onion in slices
  • 1 cup Fresh Crumble Mexican Queso Fresco Optional
  • 1 Avocado cubed Optional
  • ½ cup Green Tomatillo salsa
  • ½ cup Red Mexican Salsa
  • ½ cup Mexican Cream
  • Diced Pickled carrots and jalapeños or Serrano peppers


  • Warm the tortillas at a medium-high heat skillet or griddle.
  • Spread a small amount of the refried beans on the tortilla.
  • Add a small portion of the meat and fold the tortilla.
  • Keep the folded tortillas warm in a kitchen napkin while you finish assembling all your tortillas.
  • Place the folded tortillas back on the hot skillet or griddle and with the help of a pastry brush apply vegetable oil on both sides of the tortillas. Warm your tacos for about 30 seconds per side.
  • To serve, place 3 tacos per person on a plate and top with cabbage, onion, tomatoes, and cheese.

Serve with Mexican cream on the side and garnish with slices of pickled carrots and jalapeños, if desired.


    The original recipe is made with lard and the tortillas are completely fried in it. This is my own version using less oil. Yellow tortillas somehow taste better in this kind of taco but white corn tortillas work fine, that is why you see 2 types of tortillas in the pictures.
