Baked Tacos

My little guy made salsa at playgroup yesterday, and that had me hankering for some Mexican food.  There was a recipe floating around on facebook for baked tacos that had me drooling, and I knew it was meant to be.  I changed it a little from the original, but it was still very tasty.  AND the two-year-old who has been very defiant and not wanting to eat anything at supper time at half of a taco.  SUCCESS!

Anyway, here’s what you do:

Brown the meat.  I used lean ground beef.  The package I had was just shy of a pound, about 400g.  While I was browning it, I seasoned it with my own personal concoction, but feel free to use a package of taco seasoning if you wish.  I used chili powder, onion powder, dehydrated onions, red pepper flakes, cumin, salt, pepper, garlic, and fresh oregano.  You’ll want to taste to make sure you’ve got the flavours right.  I put in a lot of chili and cumin because I’m slightly congested, and I wanted something spicy.

Next, I preheated the oven to 375.  I lined up 8 whole grain tortillas in a pan, and filled them with the meat.  I then added some refried beans (I used about half a can), spooned some salsa over top and then finished them off with a sprinkle of cheese.  I popped them in the over for about 10 minutes, and then we ate them with plain yogurt (we had the Balkan style) and some lettuce.

Delicious!
