Beer Tacos

My grandfather had the family over for supper, and he added a very special ingredient I never thought you could use for tacos. While letting the meat simmer in the beer I took a taste test and could not believe how amazing it was. You can definitely taste the beer in the ground beef. If you're drinking a beer along with your tacos makes the experience that much more enjoyable.

What you will need:

1 lb ground beef
1 bottle of dark lager beer
1/2 package of taco seasoning
Taco shells/Soft tortilla
Shredded Taco Cheese/Queso Fresca Cheese

Brown your ground beef  at med. high temperature and drain.
 Stir in your taco seasoning so that it sticks to your meat.
Add your bottle of beer into your meat pour slowly. Simmer for 35 minutes on Med. temperature covered, until your beef has absorbed all that beer and you can taste that goodness.

For a quick night fix, you are done just heat your tortillas and shells, add your meat and toppings and you have a fast dinner with amazing flavor!

What I like to do is take a soft tortilla place queso fresca on top then lay a hard shell on top, heat up oil in a pan place the soft and hard tortilla in the pan and fry until cheese has melted and hard shell is attached to the soft shell. Its kind of like the gordita crunch from Taco Bell.

Or like I show below do the same but instead of frying together, place in a 400 degree preheated oven for about 15 minutes until cheese is melted. There you have it Beer Tacos!!!
