This is the real deal...or as close as it gets! This is the recipe for that wonderful, mushy goodness found in the soft tacos at Taco Bell. Of course, it also tastes great in the corn taco shells, too! Prepare as directed and then spoon it, add your favorite extras like lettuce and tomato and start the fiesta! Olè!
In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef with the flour, chili powder, salt, minced onion, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients into the ground beef.
Add the seasoned beef mixture to the water in a skillet over medium heat. Mix well with a wooden spoon or spatula, and break up the meat as it cooks. Heat for 5-6 minutes, or until browned. The finished product should be very smooth, somewhat pasty, with no large chunks of beef remaining.
Heat tortillas in microwave 20-30 seconds, or until warm.
Build each taco by spooning 2 to 3 tablespoons of the meat into a warm tortilla. Sprinkle cheese on top. Repeat with remaining ingredients and serve immediately.
