Mix all ingredients and put in a heated large skillet on medium. Cook untill all liquid is cooked out. (Cooking on any higher than 4-5 it will harden the meat.) Turn oven on 350 and set tortillas directly on rack and let sit for 30-45 seconds, until tortillas are pliable. Hard tacos put on a baking sheet for 4-5 minutes in heated oven. Enjoy with all your favorite fixings. Taste great with corn bean salsa or pico de gallo.
