Taco meat fillings in Crepes

Tonight's dinner was fast and simple. We wanted to have Mexican food but do not have any Taco shells or Tortillas. In order to replace Taco shells, I made Crepes. French and Mexican combined. Simple and delicious. :)

It is very easy to make the taco meat fillings. I just used the Taco seasoning mix that can easily get at the store. Follow the instructions at the back of the packet. For my crepes, I followed the recipe from my recipe book. I love to eat crepes.. especially as desserts. All that chocolate sauce, ice-cream or even with Nutella.. oh my.. i wish i have some Nutella right now.. lol!! Anyway, it was a good dinner for the two of us. :)

Taco meat filling
1 package of Taco Seasoning Mix
2/3 cup water
1 pound ground beef

In a small saucepan, brown and crumble ground beef. Drain fat. Wipe out the excess fat in the saucepan with paper towels. Stir in Taco seasoning mix and water. Cook and stir for 2-4 minutes.

Crepes
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
3/4 cup water
2-1/4 cups butter melted
pinch of salt

Combined eggs, milk and water. Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the combined mixture. With a whisk gradually drawn in the flour and whisk to a smooth batter. Stir in the melted butter. Pour into a jug and set aside for 30 minutes.
Heat a 8-inch non-stick frying pan and grease lightly. When the pan is hot, pour in about 1/4 cup of the mixture and tilt the pan to cover. Tip out any excess batter. When the edges begin to curl, gently turn the pancake over with a spatula. Cook until lightly browned on both sides and slide onto a plate. Serve immediately.

Top with diced tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, sour cream.. hmm.. yummy!
