Oven Baked Beef Tacos



1 lb. Lean Ground Beef (93/7)
1 15 oz. Can Black Beans – Drained and Rinsed
1 Medium Onion – Diced
2-3 tbsp. of Homemade Taco Seasoning
4 Cloves Garlic – Minced
1 10 oz. Can of Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies
12 Hard Taco Shells
1 ½ cups of Shredded Cheese of Choice



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large skillet, heat oil and add onion and garlic – saute for about 5 minutes until soft.  Add beef and taco seasoning, cooking until meat is browned. Add beans and salsa.  Mix well and let cook for a couple of minutes so that the flavors can meld and the mixture can thicken.

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.

Bake for 8-10 minutes (or until all the cheese is melted).

Serve with your favorite taco toppings; whatever you like!
