Okie Tacos

Sorry if that title is not politically correct but that is the only name I know these tacos go by!
It is a family recipe handed down from some okies from Muskogee...
Alene Edminson I believe was her name...

My mom had a boyfriend and that boyfriend had a mom that liked to cook big meals for everyone on Sundays, if we all went fishing at little rock dam, she would cook up trout and catfish, with Pappy's famous hush puppies, but if we did not catch anything we ate Okie Tacos, and I was sure glad when we did not catch anything cause them there Okie Tacos are to simply to die for!

Taco fit for an Oklahoma king!
Here is how you get yourself one of them there Okie Tacos:

1 pound ground beef
1/2 onion chopped
1 medium can kidney beans, drain and smash them a bit
1 medium can Las Palmas enchilada sauce
1 small can sliced black olives drained
1 jar cheez whiz-do not leave this out, it makes the damn taco!
lettuce chopped
tomatoes chopped
sour cream

some 8 inch flour tortillas and some Crisco oil to fry them up in

Brown your beef and onions, add sauce, olives, beans. Bring to boil then turn down fire to simmer for about 30 minutes. Then heat up the Crisco, about 1/2 cup full in a large cast iron skillet, just enough to coat the bottom and fry up your tortillas until crispy and brown, lay on some paper towels to drain, once you have your meat mix cooked and your tortillas fried up, just grab a tortilla, ladle a big ol spoonful of meat mix in, top with a line of cheez whiz, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, fold up and enjoy, sometimes if it gets too messy you have to eat with a fork! This will make about 8 tacos, but they are big and filling, so you don't need much!

And there you go, Okie Tacos! D-DamnDelicious!! YeeHaw!!!
