Oven Tacos!


Okay, the other day I was spending way too much time on Pinterest. I came across a picture of these delicious looking tacos. When I clicked on the link, I saw they are called Oven Tacos. Apparently it is thing. A thing I never heard of until the other day. I looked at the recipe and it was so darn easy, I had to try them.

If you make tacos using regular store bought taco shells, then these are so easy to make. I loved them because it made the shells softer and they held together. The melted cheese makes the meat more yummy. Plus, the cheese does not fall out like it usually does when you just toss it on top of the taco.


I use Old El Paso shells because they are the stand and stuff kind. 




Make your filling. I like using ground beef with sauteed tomatoes, onions and garlic. I also use my own spice mix: salt, garlic powder, onion powder, red chili flakes, pepper, cumin and coriander. 


Stuff your tacos with the meat. Add lots of cheese on top. bake for 12 minutes in a 400 degree oven. 


Get your toppings ready! 


Cheesy and meaty goodness in a taco shell. Add toppings and eat!! YUMMO!

  5. Geez, am I glad you spent all that time browsing Pinterest! I usually make burritos rather than tacos, but I think that's going to change. And I've just begun making my own seasoning mix, too. Anyway, thanks for this recipe.

  8. This look so good. I love taco night at our house, we usually include it with game night, sometime we switch to pizza instead. Oven baked though I have never tried. I bet they are so good. And I love the stand along shells better.

  12. I usually make my own tortillas and taco shells. Like the 'flat bottom'... makes it easier both in the oven and for serving. Great idea using the oven!
