1/4 tsp. oregano leaves
for cheddar sauce:
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar (the more the better)
 
Mix ingredients for Taco Seasoning and set aside in a small bowl. Separate chuck and brown in a pan, drain all fat. Add the water and evenly shower the chuck with the seasoning Taco Seasoning. Mix until distributed evenly and mixed thoroughly, then let simmer on low heat for 20 minutes.While the chuck is simmering, prepare the Cheese Sauce. First, melt the butter. Combine flour and salt, then pour into butter while mixing thoroughly.
Slowly pour in milk while mixing, continuing to stir until thick or fully dissolved. Add cheese and stir until dissolved and creamy. Makes about 1 1/3 cup.
When meat is finished, turn off flame and fill tacos or tortillas. Load up with your desired toppings and generously drizzle with cheese sauce. Frank's Original RedHot Cayenne pepper sauce is highly recommended for topping off the cheese!
Makes about 4-5 taco's.found on: cooks.com
