Serves: 16
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 small Yellow Onion, chopped
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper, diced
  • 8 oz. Mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1 lb. Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp. Milk (optional)
  • 16 Flour Tortillas, street taco size
  • 2 cups Shredded Romaine Lettuce
  • ½ Tomato, chopped
  • 1 oz. Queso Cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp. Chopped Cilantro
  • 2 tbsp. Chopped Italian Parsley
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Salsa
  • Horseradish Sour Cream (see notes below)
  1. Sauté the yellow onion, bell peppers and onions over medium heat in olive oil until softened. Pour into a strainer in the sink and allow to drain for a few minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef in the same sauté pan over medium heat. Drain, if necessary and return to the pan.
  3. Add the sautéed vegetables back to the pan and mix together with the ground beef, cream cheese, ¼ cup shredded Monterey Jack and the milk. Mix until the cheeses have melted and a sauce has formed.
  4. Preheat oven to 400F. Divide the flour tortillas among two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Add a handful of cheese on top of each tortilla and place some of the ground beef mixture on one side of each tortilla on top of the cheese.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove the tacos from the oven and fold each in half, pressing down lightly with a spatula to ensure the tacos stay folded.
  6. Return the tacos to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until browned and crispy.
  7. Allow the tacos to cool slightly, then serve with desired toppings and serve immediately.
