Oven Baked Tacos
1 lb lean ground beef
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, diced
1 (1 oz) packet taco seasoning
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chunky salsa
12 hard taco shells
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large skillet, heat oil and add onion and garlic – saute for about 5 minutes until soft. Add beef and taco seasoning, cooking until meat is browned. Add beans and salsa. Mix well and let cook for a couple of minutes so that the flavors can meld and the mixture can thicken.
In a large 9x13" baking pan, line up all the taco shells. Fill each one with a couple of scoops of the beef mixture and pack down into the shell. Repeat until all the shells are filled. Top each taco with shredded cheese.
Bake for 8-10 minutes (or until all the cheese is melted).
Serve with your favorite taco toppings (tomatoes, lettuce, olives, sour cream, hot sauce, or whatever you like!).
