Baked Tacos--Easy Weeknight Recipe

We are all about easy recipes at our house.  We are also all about Mexican inspired recipes. So when my sister shared this baked taco recipe with me, I knew it would be a win all around.  We LOVE these.  They are so easy to make.  They freeze well, so we always get at least TWO meals out of one recipe.

I shared this recipe on Instagram a few weeks ago.  Follow me there for more recipes and mom tips.

Ingredients

  • 12 Fajita sized tortillas
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • splash of water
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 4 oz tomato sauce
  • Shredded Cheese (I almost always use the Fiesta Blend)

First, brown and drain one pound of ground meat.

Second, mix in 1/4 cup of taco seasoning.  I always add a splash of water to help with mixing.

Next, add in one can of refried beans and 4 ounces of tomato sauce.  The tomato sauce comes in an eight ounce can, so I just add about half of the can.

Once all of your ingredients are mixed together well, spread the meat and bean mixture on half of each tortilla.  Fold the tortilla together to make a taco.

Add sprinkled cheese to each taco.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until the edges start to crisp up and brown.

These baked tacos are so delicious and freeze so well. When I prepare from frozen, I just put them in the oven directly from the freezer.  Then I add about 30 minutes to the baking time.
