*You can really use whatever you'd like inside the tacos. Below are the items we used.
- Hamburger meat (approx 1 lb)
- Hard taco shells
- Taco seasoning (we used some home made seasoning that was gifted to us)
- 1 onion
- Mexican cheese
- Sour cream
**Next time, I'd add lettuce and tomatoes on top after everything has baked
1. Cook your hamburger meat. Once the meat is cooked, drain the grease, add a teaspoon or 2 of water (add water according to the taco seasoning packet) and then add your taco seasoning. Make sure everything is well combined.
2. Lightly spray some non-stick cooking spray on a baking dish and line up your taco shells. Fill shells with hamburger meat, salsa, onions (we grilled ours prior), and cheese. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
3. Once your tacos are done, top with remaining items (sour cream, tomatoes, etc.) and enjoy!
I did have some lessons learned with this recipe:
1. The bottom of the tacos got a little soggy so I had some blow outs. I'm attributing this to either I didn't let them cook long enough (I took them out 2 min early), I put too much spray in the baking dish or I didn't drain the grease from the meat enough.
2. I planned on having this dish for 2 nights and cooked/baked everything the first night. Next time, I'll cook everything the first night but then only bake what we were going to eat each night. They were a lot more soggy the 2nd night but heating them up in the oven instead of the microwave seemed to help.
