Do you ever make something and wonder where it has been your entire life? This is that recipe. I have seen baked tacos done before but why have I not tried them until now? My family has been missing out.

These really couldn’t be easier to make but are packed with so many incredible flavors. They get a layer of refried beans on the bottom followed by a black bean taco seasoned ground beef. Then topped with melty cheese….. ohhhhh yeah!

Then the best part about these tacos are that you load them up with all of your favorite toppings. I am an avocado, tomato, olives and cilantro kind of girl. But you can add as many toppings as your heart desires. Add a dollop of sour cream or even some jalapeños for some kick!

With life as busy as it is at our house you better believe these are happening every week. My family DE-voured them! They are the perfect thing for busy nights and are perfect in the warm corn tortilla shell with all of the yummy layers of flavors inside. Once you make them once you will want them again and again!

  1. Yesterday my parents visited and we decided to get some take (taco) out, as there’s a taco place close by. My dad came home with fries and beef because the taco place was too busy, and now I’m still craving tacos! So yes, I’d gladly have some of these beefy baked tacos please 😉
