Title: Jack-In-The-Box Taco
Yield: 12 Servings


1 lb ground beef
1/3 c refried beans
1/4 ts salt
2 tb chili powder
1/4 c ortega taco sauce
12 soft corn tortillas
3 c cooking oil(crisco prefer'd)
6 sl american cheese
1 head lettuce, chopped fine


1) Slowly brown ground beef over low heat, using wooden spoon to chop
and stir meat, keeping it very fine and smooth. 2) When beef is
browned, drain fat. 3) Add refried beans and use wooden spoon to
smash the whole beans into the mixture, creating a smooth texture. 4)
Add the salt, chili powder, and 2 tbs. of the taco sauce to the
mixture. Remove from heat. 5) In another skillet, heat 1/4" of oil
until hot. (Test with small pc. of tortilla--it should bubble when
dropped into the oil.) Crisco oil will give the food a taste closest
to the original. 6) Spread 1/12 th of beef mixture on center of each
tortilla. 7) Fold tortillas over and press so that the beef filling
acts as an adhesive and holds sides together. 8) Drop each taco into
the pan of hot oil and fry on both sides until crispy. 9) When
cooked, remove the tacos from the oil and place them on a rack or
some paper towels until they are a little cooler. 10) Pry open each
taco slightly. Add 1/2 slice of american cheese (cut diagonally) and
some lettuce. Top with abt. 1 1/2 tsp. of remaining taco sauce.

Yield: Makes 12 Tacos

Older than McDonald's and Burger King, Jack-in-the-Box, is the
world's 5th largest hamburger chain, with 1,089 outlets (by the end
of 1991) in 13 states throughout the West and Southwest. The
restaurant, headquartered in San Diego, boasts one of the largest
menus in the fast-food world--a whopping
45 items.
Now taste for yourself the homemade version of Jack's most
popular item. The Jack-in-the-Box Taco has been served since the
inception of the chain, with very few changes over the years.
