    1 tablespoon vegetable oil ½ cup of water 1½ pounds lean ground beef 2 cups shredded lettuce 2 cups diced tomato 1½ cups shredded cheese ½ cup chopped onion (as desired) 3 tablespoons taco seasoning (see recipe below) 10-12 crispy corn tortilla shells Your favorite hot sauce or salsa, as des...
