Tasty Tuesday {Baked Tacos Recipe}

Hey y’all!
I found this amazing recipe (thanks to Pinterest) and I just had to share!
I’ve pinned hundreds of recipes, yet I have only tried a handful of them. {I’m sure there are people who can relate!} However, I plan on changing that!

On Sunday, Clint and I were talking about finding and trying new recipes. OF COURSE, the first place I searched was my “Yummy in my Tummy” Pinterest Board. I pinned a recipe for baked tacos many months ago, and decided it was time to try it. You can find the original post HERE.
It did NOT disappoint!

I loved this recipe because it was EASY, QUICK, and DELICIOUS!
What more could you ask for?

Here is a picture of the ingredients needed:

Shredded cheese not pictured. It was chilling in the fridge. :)

*I made this recipe my own! I did not completely copy the original recipe, so there is a slight variation.*

My ingredients included:
1 lb. of Ground Beef
Onion (Optional)
Taco Seasoning of your choice
Small can of Tomato Sauce
Taco Sauce
Refried Beans
Hard Taco Shells (Stand and Stuff/Flat Bottom Recommended)
Old El Paso (60 Second) Mexican Rice
2 Cups of Shredded Cheese (Mexican Blend) *Not pictured.

If you visited the original post, you read that she made her own hard taco shells. I’m all about convenience, and I didn’t see a reason to reinvent the wheel. Therefore, I used the Old El Paso Stand and Stuff Taco Shells. I HIGHLY recommend using the Stand and Stuff Shells, you will see why shortly!

Preheat oven to 400°F
First: Cook ground beef and drain.
Then add chopped onion (optional) and taco seasoning packet (or homemade seasoning).
{Note: I did not add water to my meat as directed on seasoning packet. I’m not sure if it makes a difference or not with this particular recipe.}
*While the meat was cooking, I cooked my 60 Second Mexican Rice.
Clint and I love Mexican rice, so we added it to our mix. However, this is completely optional as well.

Next: Add tomato sauce, refried beans, and rice. Mix well!

Then: Place taco shells in glass pan. Using the Stand and Stuff Shells helps them stand very nicely. :)

Next: Fill the taco shells with the meat mixture.

After I filled the taco shells, I added taco sauce on top of them.
{This was something else I added to satisfy my taste buds.}

Then: Cover the tacos with the shredded cheese.
