The meat is so flavorful.
The fried shells take them over the top.
— we have a person with IBS in our household, so I do this low FODmap style (the alternative uses sautéed garlic and onions in the first step and chili powder rather than my custom/adjustable mix):
small "raw" corn tortillas (the
ghee (for frying the tortillas)
Combine the spices and salt
Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat until shimmering
Stir in the spice/salt mixture until fragrant ~30 seconds
Stir in the ground beef and cook, breaking it up until no longer pink, ~5 min
Mix together the diced tomato, tomato paste, broth, vinegar, and sugar
Add to the beef and simmer until thickened, ~10 min
While this is happening, assuming you have floppy tortillas, fry them in the ghee one-by-one, shaping them as you go, with the help of tongs.
Don't worry if they're not all hot when you're ready to sit down — my experience is that if you try to keep them warm, they'll end up more tough/chewy than it's worth.
