Baked Tacos

I’ve never thought about baking tacos until I spotted this recipe at Blog Chef.  We love tacos (even though they’re messy) so I decided to try them.  Since there are only three of us, I cut the recipe in half. Of course, I tweaked a couple of things, too.

You will need:

1 pound hamburger
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 shake or 2 of  red pepper flakes (depending on how your family likes it)
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 16 oz. can of pinto beans
2 cups of Mexican blend cheese
1 box hard taco shells

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In small bowl, combine onion powder, cornstarch, cumin, oregano, red pepper flakes and set aside.

Brown hamburger in large enough pan.   I drain mine over the sink in a colander.  Add beans, tomato sauce and taco seasoning.  Mix well.

Spoon taco meat and bean mixture into taco shells and place shells in 9×13 baking dish.  Sprinkle cheese on top and then bake in hot oven for about 10 minutes.

Serve with:  lettuce, tomato, extra cheese, sour cream, diced onions, guacamole, salsa and whatever else your family likes.
