Oven Tacos by Lori ♥

Need a Fast and Easy Recipe - this one is sure to please. When all the kids were living at home (we are talking 3 teenagers - 2 of them boys), I needed fast, easy recipes that were also a crowd pleaser.

Lori's Oven Tacos
Ingredients
Ground Beef
Salsa (we use the jar salsa - Mild Type Salsa)
Taco Seasoning Mix (optional, but it adds flavor)
1/4 c water (use only if you choose the seasoning mix option)
Taco Cheese
Tortilla type shells

Extras, if desired: Lettuce, Sour Cream

Brown ground beef and Drain. Mix in salsa, seasoning mix and water. Spoon the beef/salsa mix into the soft shells and place shells in a 13" x 9" pan. You will be stacking the shells horizontally so that there is a soft fold (like a regular taco). Just keep doing this until all the beef/salsa mix has been used. You can then add your taco cheese - as much or as little as desired. Bake in oven at 375 degrees until shells are lightly brown.

Let cool for a few minutes and add your own toppings - lettuce, sour cream, etc.

On another note, when my 2 boys were high school, they played varsity football and each family took a turn cooking for the entire varsity football team. I made these at one of the dinners and we didn't have any leftovers.
