Snoop Dogg’s Tacos With A Soft Touch
This taco recipe from Snoop Dogg is perfect for the less adventurous taco eater.
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
8 corn tortillas
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, sliced
Garnish: Limes, fresh cilantro, sliced scallions, hot sauce
- In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the vegetable oil. Swirl the skillet to cover the bottom completely. When the skillet is hot, add the onion. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onion is softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more.
- Add the ground beef, salt, chili powder, and cumin. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, stirring often to break up the meat, until the beef is completely browned. Taste and adjust for seasoning, if necessary. Drain and discard any excess grease. Transfer the beef to a large bowl, cover, and set aside.
- To char the tortillas, turn your gas burner to the lowest setting. Place one tortilla directly above the flame for about 45 seconds, or until the bottom is slightly crips and charred. Using tongs, flip the tortilla, watching to make sure it doesn’t burn. Place the charred tortilla on a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
- Top each charred tortilla with beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and jalapeño. Garnish with lime, cilantro, scallions, and hot sauce. Serve warm.
