Baked Tacos

These are so delicious and a nice change to my normal tacos I make. I am using ground beef here, but you could use shredded chicken or just pack it with sautéed veggies.

TIP: When I made these, I flatten the tacos with a cookie sheet so the tortilla stays closed.

Baked Tacos

Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • taco seasoning (and water to mix)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 white onion, sliced
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • small tortillas
  • mexican style shredded cheese
  • hot sauce and sour cream (optional)

Recipe

  • Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.
  • In a medium skillet, brown your ground beef and add in the taco seasoning.
  • Remove the beef from the skillet once it’s done and set aside.
  • Add the bell peppers, onions and olive oil to the same skillet.
  • Once those are nicely sautéed, add the ground beef back into the skillet.
  • Add the lime juice and give it a good stir.
  • If you’d like to add a little char to the tortillas, cook both sides over a flame. This is completely optional.
  • Fill your tortillas with the beef filling, top with a little cheese and then fold them and place on a baking sheet. Do this until all of your beef is used.
  • Place a baking sheet on top of the tacos to hold them flat and then place them in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
  • Take them out of the oven and then top them with sour cream and hot sauce (optional).
  • Enjoy!

Get cooking!
