Wicked Oven Baked Beef Tacos

Spice up your Cinco de Mayo traditions with a wicked twist.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 (1 oz) packet taco seasoning (or 2-3 tbsps of Homemade Taco Seasoning)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Spicy Sandwich Spread
  • 12 hard taco shells
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil and add onion and garlic. Sauté for about 5 minutes until soft.  Add beef and taco seasoning, cooking until meat is browned. Add beans and Spicy Sandwich Spread.  Mix well and let cook for a couple of minutes so that the flavors can meld and the mixture can thicken.
  3. In a large 9×13″ baking pan, line up all the taco shells. Fill each one with a couple of scoops of the beef mixture and pack down into the shell. Repeat until all the shells are filled. Top each taco with shredded cheese.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes (or until all the cheese is melted).
  5. Serve with your favorite taco toppings
