Pan Fried Beef Tacos

Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  3. 1 (10 ounce can) Diced tomatoes and green chiles, drained
  4. 1 (4.5 ounce can) green chiles
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  7. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. 6 (8 inch) flour or whole wheat tortillas
  9. 3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
Instructions
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the beef, breaking up with a spoon into crumbles until completely cooked through. Drain the grease and return to the skillet.
  • Next add the diced tomatoes, green chiles, salt, cumin and garlic powder. Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes to warm the filling through, then transfer to a bowl.
  • Carefully wipe out the skillet with paper towels and spray with cooking spray.
  • Place a tortilla in the skillet and top one half of the tortilla with about 3/4 cup of the filling and 1/2 cup of cheese.
