I really don't mind taco meat that has some oatmeal in it, as filler.
In fact, I probably prefer the texture. Soft, not clumpy. Plus, you get the benefits of the oats, assuming they are whole rolled oats. And there needs to be some tomato in the meat, too. But not sugar. I don't like sugar in taco meat. Or garlic. Or if it is too juicy. Wet Mexican beef tacos are bad. The fried, corn shell gets soggy. But, if they are soft tacos with a hearty flour tortilla, the moisture won't really matter. My favorite toppings are shredded cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, and sour cream. Used to, I didn't like sour cream because I was afraid it was spoiled. But then, years ago, I started noticing that the expiration date on sour cream sold in grocery stores extended way considerably, as it expired 90 days from the date of purchase. Used to, it wouldn't be good for very long, as milk. I don't know what they did but now it seems you can buy sour cream that will last a long, long time, which is weird, because it has soured in the first place. I never understood that. Like cottage cheese. Hello? It has curdled. Why am I eating it?

1. Have you considered becoming a vegetarian. When I go out for Mexican food
I get the vegetarian tacos, the ones with just the fixings or maybe nachos using beans.

2. Yes, I have seriously considered. Great suggestion.
In fact, it is something with which I struggle. You are correct, BBLouise.

Thanks,

Floog

8. The fake sour cream is pretty good though
Raleys/Bel Air/Nob Hill has it.

7. Have you tried steamed corn tortillas for soft tacos?
They are better for you (and more authentic, if anybody cares)

Also good with shredded pork for the meat and cabbage for the "greenery" with a slice of avocado and a squeeze of lime - mmmm

Another goody is vegetarian soft tacos. Put three corn tortillas on a paper plate or on a papertowel on a regular plate. Put a tablespoon or two of grated cheese in a line about midway on each tortilla. Nike for 60 seconds or untill cheese is bubbly. Fresh chopped tomatos and crisp sweet onions, a squeese of lime and some salsa ... pretty tasty.
