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
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!).
I started this blog a few years ago because I was tired of trying to organize all my recipes. I never knew what cookbook the recipe I was looking for was in and I would spend hours thumbing through books and papers trying to find the one I was looking for. I don't cook anything fancy, just simple homemade food that our family enjoys. If me or my family won't eat it then you won't find the recipe on my blog. I am not blogging for fame so the recipes may be posted randomly. I only post recipes that I have tried and we will be making again. I hope you enjoy our collection of our family's favorites recipes. ~Krista C.
