Pantry Tacos Recipe

By Wheggi
Difficulty: Medium | Total Time: 15 min. | Makes: Depends how much you can steal!

Used to make these when I was living in a garage and would “borrow” the stuff from my friend’s pantry that he wouldn’t miss. They’re actually quite tasty.

  • veg. oil
  • some corn tortillas
  • 1 can Spam
  • I can Van de Camp's pork and beans
  • slices of American cheese
  • ketchup
  1. Heat oil in a skillet. Using tongs, quickly fry the corn tortillas, folding them in half when they become pliable. Remove and pat with a paper towel to absorb excess oil
  2. Fry spam. Cut up into small chunks and add pork and beans. Heat through.
  3. Fill tortillas with spam/bean mixture. Garnish with American cheese and ketchup. Eat like it will be the last food you chow for a long while . . .
