1 pound ground beef

2 cups masa harina
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water
2 pieces bacon, fried and crumbled
2 tablespoons Longhorn cheese

Shredded lettuce
Sliced or diced tomatoes

Fry beef and onion together. Season with salt, pepper, garlic salt and chili powder. While meat is cooking, mix with hands all ingredients for shells. Pinch off small portion of dough and roll into 2-inch ball. With quick patting motion, flatten out to 1/2 inch thickness and about 3 inches in diameter. Fry in hot grease until golden brown, turning once. Drain. Make a slit through the middle; open slightly like a taco shell and stuff with meat mixture, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. Serve with favorite chili or taco sauce.
