The ground beef is cooked in ACIDIC FRESH LIME JUICE. Then mixed with other fresh ingredients. PERFECT for the summer heat. Don't worry about e coli or undercooked the acid will do it's job as well as the proper waiting time.
This is served with TOSTADAS aka lighly fried corn tortillas that are like a big round crisp corn chip and you spread this on top.
You can buy tostadas pre-packaged and made. I choose to make my own at home. I'll post that up shortly.
-About 1 ½ to 1 lbs. ground beef (USE A REALLY LEAN ground beef for this I recommend it)
-2 Cups freshly squeezed LIME juice (about the juice of 13 juicy limes)
-4 small or 2 large ripe Tomato cut in little cubes
-1/2 onion Onions minced into little tiny cubes
-1 cup finely chopped cilantro
-3 Serrano chili peppers (minced VERY tiny seeds and all)
-About 1 ½ tablespoons salt or salt to taste
-1 tsp. of ground black pepper or to taste
-1-2 tsp. garlic powder (optional but for me it makes a HUGE difference)
-Mix ground beef with lime juice in a bowl. Cover bowl in plastic wrap and refridgerate for about 3-4 hours or until beef loses all it's pink color and if grey or cooked. Some people rather leave it overnight to cook like 6-12 hours. Honestly for me 3-4 is enough.
-When beef is cooked mix well with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
-Then add the rest of the ingredients and incorporate. Taste it to adjust salt to your taste.
ENJOY as a spread over your tostada on a HOT DAY!
