An easy dinner – Baked Tacos Recipe

A few weeks ago I pinned this recipe on Pinterest, and tonight I finally got around to trying it out.

I am trying to get myself [and the whole family] back into the habit of actually cooking during the week. To help me get there, I’ve been testing out Plan To Eat, and it’s actually going really well – super easy website, and I love that it makes my shopping list for me. That being said, this isn’t the healthiest recipe in the world [okay, nowhere close to it], but it was easy, it was yummy, and it was kid-friendly. Here is my adapted recipe [original from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures]

Ingredients:
1/2 onion
2 lbs ground turkey
1/2 can refried beans
1 can green chilies
1 can Rotel [I like the cilantro lime version]
1 pkg taco seasoning
shredded cheese
18-20 hard taco shells [the kind with the flat bottoms are best]
lettuce, salsa, sour cream, guacamole etc. for serving.

Get Cookin’!
Dice onion, and brown it along with turkey.
Drain off any fat.
Add refried beans, green chilies, Rotel, and seasoning.
Place taco shells in oven-safe pan, fill with mixture.
Spoon mixture into taco shells, sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes or until heated through.

Super easy, super yummy. The husband made the comment that these were ‘taco sloppy joes’. We spooned on guacamole and salsa and nommed the whole pan. Enjoy!

  1. Can these be made with tortillas? My husband is not too fond of the hard shell tacos.

    I bet you can but they’d probably be very messy. More like a burrito than anything else. Or you could lay them flat and layer them and cut into it. Almost like and Mexican pizza from taco bell, but soft. Just a thought.
