Eat In. Malo's Ground Beef and Pickle Taco.

Silverlake's Malo has a new sister restaurant that just opened up in downtown, called Mas Malo, that's creating a ton of buzz right now. But if you can't get a reservation, and are still craving those delicious tacos, enjoy some at home!

Malo's own Robert Luna divulged his secrets of the ground beef and pickle taco to KCET. Check out the recipe below:

1lb ground beef
2 boiled russet potatoes (cut into small dices)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dry oregano
2 tablespoons paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz cheddar cheese grated
Small jar pickle chips
Soft Corn tortillas

Sauté ground beef in olive oil (1/4 cup oil). Add all the dry spices and cook 5 minutes add cooked diced potatoes. Continue to cook 8-10 minutes.

Remove from heat let cool on counter 30 minutes. Heat corn tortillas and fill them with the beef and potato mixture. Close both ends with a tooth pick. Fry them in canola oil about 2 minutes on each side. Once cooked, place them on a paper towel, remove toothpicks and open. Add cheddar cheese and kosher pickle chips. And enjoy!

Thanks to KCET and Robert Luna for the recipe and photo.
