Baked Tacos: A Cinco de Mayo Recipe!

Our household tends to love a good Taco Tuesday. In fact, we love almost any Mexican dish you want to serve up. But tacos and guac? Well, they hold a special place in our hearts. You should see how much guacamole Jackson gets down. It's embarrassing, really.

That being said, tacos are a meal I can count on actually being consumed by my toddler. So, it's a go-to. However, a few weeks of any good recipe will also bring need to mix it up a bit.

Now enters oven baked tacos.

Baked Tacos #recipe

Simple. Quick. Delicious. Oh, yes, the motto of my kitchen.

It's a simple twist on a taco. By adding refried beans to your taco meat mixture, topping with cheese and popping these bad boys in the oven to bake your usual Taco Tuesday, ahem Cinco de Mayo, is morphed into something much tastier.


Baked Tacos
recipe adapted from Mommy? I'm Hungry!

Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
1 taco seasoning packet
1 8 oz. Rotel tomato and green chili sauce
2 cups shredded cheese {colby-jack or Mexican mix}
lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, tomatoes for topping

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Brown the beef and add in taco seasoning as directed on packet.
3. Add rotel chili sauce and refried beans to beef mixture and let simmer.*
4. Spoon taco meat into shells, top with cheese and line in 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until shells begin to brown.

*It's important to make sure your meat simmers down so that there is little to no liquid. Leaving too much liquid in the meat will create soggy tacos, and no one wants that!
