Oven Tacos

Oven Tacos
I have never really been a big fan of ground beef tacos. I rarely had them as a kid because my mom makes a mean shredded beef that is incredibly easy so that was almost always what filled our taco shells. I surprisingly haven’t shared that recipe, I need to get on that.

Although I’m not a ground meat taco fan, I was intrigued by the name of these tacos so I had to take a closer look. They sounded a lot like a simplified version of enchiladas that you could throw together on a busy weeknight. And that’s how they tasted too. The original recipe made a large amount of tacos so I halved and tweaked it a bit to fit our tastes. These tacos were simple and required few ingredients with great results. They will be going on our regular menu rotation this fall!
