Deep Fried Tacos

Deep Fried Tacos

Fried Tacos are an easy ground beef dinner recipe using flour tortillas filled with taco beef and shredded cheese before frying.


1 lb lean ground beef
1 cup diced yellow onions
10 oz Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies
1 oz taco seasoning
12 x 6 inch flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend


Dump the ground beef into a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
Add the diced onions to the pan with the ground beef.
Crumble the ground beef well as it cooks.
Once the ground beef if fully cooked, drain the grease from the pan.
Reduce the heat to medium.
Add the Rotel and taco seasoning to the pan.
Stir until all of ground beef is coated in the seasoning.
Leave the mixture to continue cooking until no liquid remains in the bottom of the pan.
Remove the pan from the heat.
Lay the tortillas on the counter.
Divide one cup of the shredded cheese evenly between the twelve tortillas and sprinkle it on one half of each tortilla.
Spoon the meat mixture over the shredded cheese on each of the tortillas.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the meat mixture.
Fold the tortillas in half to form tacos and use two toothpicks per taco to hold them together.
Heat one inch of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat to 370F.
Use tongs to drop the tacos in the oil.
Cook the tacos until the bottoms are golden brown. 2 – 3 minutes.
Flip the tacos and continue cooking until the other sides are golden brown. 2 – 3 minutes.
Use the tongs to transfer the cooked tacos to a paper towel lined plate or dish to soak up the oil.
Allow the tacos to cool slightly before serving.
Serve and enjoy!
