Beef and Pickle Tacos

• Corn tortillas
• Canola oil for frying tortillas
• McClure’s Dill Pickle Spears, sliced

1) In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, sauté ground beef in olive oil until browned through. Use a spoon or spatula to break the ground beef up as it cooks.
2) Add all the dry spices and cook for 3 minutes more making sure that the ground beef is cooked through completely.
3) Add the sliced potatoes and toss to combine. Remove from heat and place in a bowl. Clean the sauté pan.
4) Add a few tablespoons of canola oil to the sauté pan and place over medium heat until oil heats through. Fry tortillas until each side is crisp and lightly golden brown. Drain tortillas on a paper towel.
