This recipe was written in a "palsied hand" in the back cover of a well used Betty Crocker Cookbook published in 1950 that was given to me by "Baba" as a Wedding Shower gift in 1967.
1 package Lawry's Taco Seasoning Mix
8 ounces tomato sauce, canned
1 1/2 cups water
1 pound ground beef, extra lean
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
2 cups American cheese, grated
1/2 cup onion, chopped fine
2 1/4 oz can olives, chopped and pitted
8 corn tortillas
Preheat oven to 350. Mix tomato sauce, water, and taco seasoning mix in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower temperature to simmer. Brown ground beef with seasoning salt and drain off any grease. Roll the ground beef and a small amount of the grated cheese into each tortilla and place them in an 8x12 baking dish. Top them with the sauce, the remaining cheese, chopped olives and onion. Bake for 20 minutes until cheese is thoroughly melted and serve.
