Oven Baked Tacos




My family loved this recipe! It’s a great way to make tacos especially if you are using leftover taco meat and you are looking for a quick and easy dinner. With leftovers you are just spooning everything into shells and baked. It will look like you made a complicated dinner when in fact it was quick and easy and everyone will enjoy it. 



We thought this recipe was just awesome. Although, it was nothing like the original recipe I think it’s great and a super easy way to make a ton of tacos at the same time. This simple recipe can feed up to 18 people or 18 tacos which ever you are looking for!!



Ingredients:
  • 1 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced

  • 1-15 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (16 ounce) can fat free refried beans
