I love Tacos and Taco Night. It is actually a meal we all enjoy even the kids. But I HATE cooking the chop meat in the house. I find it is so messy and I just didn't feel like dealing with it this night. I decided to try and do it on the outside grill. My husband told me I was nuts!! He said it would never work and I shouldn't even bother but I was determined to make it work:)
I used the Ortega Grande Dinner Kit Hard & Soft Tacos and 2 lbs of chop meat.
We (I say we because I don't know how to turn it on but I did watch;)) turned on the grill to high. Then when I was ready to cook, I turned it down to medium. (I'm not going to lie, I was afraid the pan was going to blow up or something if I kept it on high)
I used my Green Pan Frying Pan which I knew could take the heat since these pans are made to go in the oven at a higher heat then my grill.
I fried up the meat which took a little longer then usual but no mess and I got to sit outside and enjoy the weather while it was cooking! I just kept stirring it. It took about 15 mins.
After that was done I set it aside and put down the Reynold's Grilling Foil to heat the hard taco shells. I closed the lid and that took no time at all. I actually burned some they heated up super quick! Just sit there and watch them, don't walk away and tend to the garden like I did!! lol
The only thing that couldn't be done outside were the soft shells. That is done in the microwave.
They tasted great and no mess in the house!! Only 1 pan to clean since I used disposable for everything else.
So Tacos can be done on the Grill and I liked it better then inside on the stove:) Try it, you might like it!!
