Granny’s Recipe Cupboard

Many of my recipes are over 100 yrs old, handed down from mother, some are ones we made on our own & others are ones we’ve tried somewhere & modified the recipe to suit our taste .

 We know that in today’s fast paced life finding time to prepare things your familiar with let alone trying a new recipe can be very difficult, but when family & friends say that the best chocolate sheet cake I’ve ever had, can you bring your cherry fluff to the gathering or can you make your kielbasa with cream cheese & bagels for dinner because the only time I have them is when you come visit, its well worth it.

I’m 80 yrs old & not the speed demon I once was, so bear with  me & with  excellent support from Accelerated Web Solutions, I will have a very effective & entertaining website. Please visit it often, use recipes too make your family happy, keep your house spotless & reward yourself by clicking on my amazon link & buying yourself something.

I will eventually have all the popular & frequently used categories, to start were only going to have one, I BET YOU CAN’T MAKE IT JUST ONCE, five that I get requests for over & over again.

                                     My Tacorita

Introduced to tacorita’s  at La Fonda’s in Omaha in the ’70s & fell in love with them. Moved in 80 & was no longer able to get them, I tried everything to duplicate the sauce & failed miserably, so I substituted green Chile for the brown sauce & they turned out very good.  My family ate & enjoyed them often & I gave the recipe to many friends & relatives.



1lb ground beef

1 package of taco seasoning

1 20 oz can of green Chile enchilada sauce

1 8oz package of shredded cheese

1 package of large burrito size tortilla’s

toppings shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, jalapenos, salsa & sour cream.  (optional)


Brown hamburger, drain & place back in the skillet, add taco seasoning follow instructions on the package, take a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish or pan & cover the bottom with enchilada sauce. You are now ready to make your tacoritas, place a tortilla on a dinner place, place in microwave for 10 seconds (makes it easier to work with), put 3 teaspoons of enchilada sauce & spread it around on the tortilla, ad 1/4 of your taco meat, sprinkle generous amount of shredded cheese & roll it up,  (if you put your ingredients off center, closer to one side than the other, they’ll roll easier, be easier to get in & out & look better) place it in the dish or pan & do 3 more.  When you have all 4 done cover them with the rest of your enchilada sauce & shredded cheese  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until sauce is bubbling & cheese is melted.
