I had these tacos for the first time at my friend Chiara's house in Tucson. Her mom puts uncooked meat in the corn tortillas before frying. I was worried about not getting the cooking temp/time right so I first browned the meat in a skillet and mixed in some refried beans to make the mixture easier to spread in the tortilla. You add a few heaping spoonfuls to each corn tortilla (I also added some mozz cheese), fold over the tortilla and add to hot oil in a skillet. The oil was on medium heat and already hot when the tacos go in (make sure it sizzles when the tacos are added). After they were cooked we filled them with tomatoes and lettuce.
