Baked Tacos

So it was time for tacos again. This time I wanted to do something a bit different. Main ingredients: taco meat, hard shells, flour tortillas, beans and toppings.

I took hard shells and put them in a baking dish. I used foil to make a holder for them that allowed them to stand up. I  just folded grooves into the foil.

 Then I filled them with my cooked meat mixture. Added a sprinkling of cheese and stuck them in the oven for a few minutes to allow the shells to crisp and brown slightly, and the cheese to begin to melt.
See how they are crispy, the cheese is melty and the shells are standing up? This worked out great.

After I removed the tacos from the oven, I took a warm flour tortilla and spread a thin layer of refried beans on it and then wrapped it around the crisp taco. Yum! It was fun, good, looked good too. They tasted great. Easy-Peasy way to shake up a normal meal.
We rounded up the meal with corn, black olives, a spoon of refried beans and Mexican rice. Toppings were chosen from diced tomato, shredded lettuce, additional cheese and sour cream. Yum!
