Let’s dive into the recipe, shall we?


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 small flour tortillas
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until they become translucent.
  2. Add the tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper to the skillet. Stir until well combined.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  4. While the meat mixture is simmering, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a separate skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Once the oil is hot, fry each tortilla for about 30 seconds on each side, or until they become golden and crispy.
  6. Place the fried tortillas on a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess oil.
  7. To assemble the tacos, spoon about 1-2 tablespoons of the meat mixture onto each tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half, pressing lightly to seal.
  8. Serve your homemade Jack in the Box tacos with your favorite toppings, such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and sour cream.

Now, I must warn you that these tacos are highly addictive. Once you take a bite, you won’t be able to stop yourself from devouring the whole plate!
