I'm sure all of you have your same "old-faithful" recipes. I do. We eat A LOT of tacos, Navajo tacos and hamburger helper (jack's own special recipe that may or may not show up on this blog). After we'd been married a little over a year I decided to go on a new recipe kick and try some new stuff. Some of it I found in recipe books- others I kind of made up. I got lucky on this recipe and it turned out amazing from my own brain! (Don't burst my bubble and tell me you've eaten this before!!!!) My mom makes it all the time. My brother makes it all the time and even my sister in laws family eats it. And now YOUR family can eat it. All because of me.
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup lukewarm water (approx)
Place flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add shortening and cut into the flour mixture. Add water to make a moderately stiff dough. Knead until smooth. Cover with a damp rag and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Roll out taco shells and cook in a hot, slightly greased frying pan. Makes approx 7 shells.
2 cups of cooked rice
1 cup chicken
1/2 packet of taco seasoning
1/4 cup of water (approx)
Combine rice, chicken and taco seasoning in a frying pan. Add water and let simmer.
Heat one can of refried beans.
Once Shells, Rice and Beans are hot you can start compiling your wrap. Spread a layer of beans onto your taco shell. Spread rice on top of that. Top with cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. Finish off with ranch, sour cream or guacamole.
Jack rolls his up like a taco but I leave mine flat and cut and dip it in ranch. It is SO amazing.
