OVEN BAKED TACOS

Baked tacos are always a favourite at family dinner time, or to feed a crowd at a party. Crispy taco shells are filled with cheese and our favourite taco meat, seasoned ground beef, then cooked in the shells; the cheese is melted.

It’s one of our favourite taco recipes! Cooking these shells with meat and cheese helps keep it all together – which means more delicious food in your mouth and less in your lap! Add your favourite toppings and serve!

The difference between these cooked tacos and typical tacos is that the meat and a little cheese are added to the shells and cooked for a few minutes.

Not only do they look so delicious packed together and standing upright in a pan, but they’re also easy to prepare, and even easier to sear and enjoy. You can also prepare them with pork or chicken. It only takes three simple steps to make this delicious dish everyone will love :

Brown the ground beef and onion. Add taco seasoning, or (use homemade taco seasoning), and diced tomatoes.

Stack the taco shells side by side in a saucepan and fill with the meat and cheese mixture.

Cover with shredded cheese and cook until the shells are crispy and the cheese is melted.

To keep the cooked tacos crispy

These tacos are naturally a little soft on the bottom because of the moisture in the meat. Here are a few tips to keep them as crispy as possible.

Start with a thin layer of cheese on the bottom to create a barrier between the shell and the meat.

Make sure the meat is cooked until all the liquid has evaporated.

Fill and bake just before serving. Once cooked, serve immediately.

Can I use soft tortillas? Although you can use soft tortillas for regular ground beef tacos, these baked tacos need a crispy taco. I find the crispy taco shells that stand on their own are the easiest to use.
