A Girl & Her Food: White Boy (Girl) Tacos


White Boy (Girl) Tacos

White boy tacos are now renamed to White Girl Tacos. How many of you grew up eating the Ortega family packs for taco night? Have you ever hit the border for those hard shell tacos at Taco Bell?  While shopping at Trader Joe's I came across Taco Shells made with organic stone ground yellow corn for $1.99 (12 shells).  Thanks Trader Joe's for the giving me this brilliant recipe idea for a budget Cinco de Mayo party.  Why not make a cheap, fun and little healthier fast food style dinner for my husband and some friends? It was a hit; who doesn't like crunchy goodness?! Duh


1 pound ground beef (I used Trader Joe's kosher beef ground chuck) 
1 box of Trader Jose's Taco Shells
1-2 tomatoes, diced 
1 1/2-2 cups of shredded lettuce 
1-1 1/2 cups of shredded Cheddar cheese 
1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chili powder 
1 teaspoon cumin powder 
1/2 teaspoon Mexican oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
you can use store bought. Trader Joe's sells one for $.79. 


Preheat the oven to 425° F. 
In a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onions and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until soft and lightly browned around the edges. Stir in garlic and the remaining spices. Cook for 30 seconds. Add the ground beef, cook for about 5 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon to break the meat. 
To warm taco shells:
Place shells on a baking sheet and warm in oven for 2-3 minutes. 
Remove the shells from the oven. Fill and spread the sour cream on the bottom of the taco shell, next add lettuce, beef, cheese, and top with tomatoes.  We topped our tacos with hot sauce. Enjoy!
