ENGLISH VERSION BELOW

¿Qué es lo que comerás en Halloween?  nosotros regularmente comemos pizza, sin embargo, dado que somos mexicanos, este año vamos a cambiar el menu y haremos tacos, si, ¡tacos!  ¿Qué opinas sobre hacer de la noche de Halloween una noche de tacos? a nosotros nos encantan y los comemos muy seguido.  Generalmente los hago con tortillas, pero una que otra vez me gusta usar tacos tostados.  Este año encontré esta receta y la voy a probar, se las comparto:

Tacos Tarántula

  • 1 caja de (4.7 oz) Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff tacos tostados
  • 1 libra de carne molida desgrasada
  • 1 paquete (1oz) de sazonador de tacos Old El Paso
  • 1/3 taza de agua
  • 1 taza de queso cheddar rallado (4 oz)
  • 1 1/2 tazas de lechuga rallada
  • 1 jitomate mediano, picadito
  • 1/4 taza de crema
  • 20 aceitunas negras extra grandes sin hueso
  1. Precalienta el horno a 325°F (160 °C)  y calienta los tacos dorados tal como lo explica el paquete.
  2. Mientras tanto, coloca la carne molida en un sartén sobre temperatura alta, moviendo constantemente hasta que este cocida completamente; cuélala y agrega el sazonador y el agua.  Reduce la temperatura y cocina sin tapar por 5 minutos aproximádamente, moviendo constantemente hasta que el agua se haya evaporado.  Retíralo de fuego.
  3. Pon un poco de la mezcla de la carne en el taco dorado, agrega el queso, lechuga y jitomate.
  4. Pon la crema en una bolsa de plástico, ciérrala bien y corta un hoyo pequeñito en una de las esquinas.  Usando la bolsa como duya crea la telaraña con la crema, encima de cada taco.
  5. Para hacer la araña.  Por cada taco:  toma una aceituna, ponla en el taco con el hoyo hacia abajo.  Corta una segunda aceituna a lo largo en 8 piezas, las cuales usarás como patas colocándolas alrededor de la aceituna principal.  Para los ojitos, sólo pon un puntito de crema por ojo en la aceituna.

ENGLISH

Do you know what you will be eating on Halloween? We usually have pizza, but I think we need to change that, we are Mexican, so we are going to make tacos! Yes, tacos! What do you think about making Halloween a taco night?  We love tacos and eat them often.  I usually use soft corn tortillas, but once in a while I like to use crispy shells, and this year I found this very cute recipe, and I’m going to try it, here it is:

Tarantula Tacos

  • 1 Box (4.7 oz) Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff taco shells
  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 package (1oz) Old El Paso taco seasoning mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 20 extra large pitted black olives
  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Heat taco shells in oven as directed on box.
  2. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix and water. Reduce heat to medium; cook uncovered about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until water has evaporated. Remove from heat.
  3. Spoon beef mixture into heated taco shells. Top with cheese, lettuce and tomato.
  4. Spoon sour cream into small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Seal bag; cut tiny hole in corner of bag. Pipe sour cream over top of each taco to resemble spiderweb.
  5. For each spider, top taco with 1 olive, pitted end down. Cut second olive lengthwise into 8 pieces; place around whole olive for legs. For eyes, squeeze 2 dots of sour cream onto top of olive.

Buen Provecho! and if you want to try it, you can get a coupon right here!
