How to Make Tacos

Make these classic ground beef tacos for your next family dinner or party. Perfect tacos await after you sprinkle with lettuce, onion and tomato and a little hot sauce if you like spicy.

Add milk, oil, all-purpose flour, bread flour, sugar, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and yeast to a bread machine according to manufacturer's directions for a 1-pound loaf. Select dough cycle. When cycle is complete, remove dough and punch down. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
Roll dough into a 10x6-inch rectangle; cut into twelve 1/2-inch-wide strips. Gently pull each strip into a rope about 16 inches long. Shape each rope into a pretzel by crossing the rope's ends over each other, forming a circle with 4-inch tails. Twist once at the crossover point. Fold the tails over the circle. Moisten the ends and press to seal.
Place pretzels 1/2-inch apart on greased baking sheets. Bake in a 475 degree F oven for 4 minutes. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degree F.
Dissolve the 2 teaspoons salt in 2 quarts boiling water. Reduce heat. Gently slide pretzels, a few at a time, into simmering water. Simmer for 2 minutes, turning once. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on a wire rack. Place 1/2-inch apart on a well-greased baking sheet.
