Tailgate Recipes: Baked Tacos
My friend Allyson, made these and posted on Insta the other day and I had to share with you all. I love tex-mex food so much, that my heart literally skipped a beat when I saw her photo. These look so deliciously epic. I can't wait to make them for our next tailgate. I love simple recipes that you can assemble before and cook on gameday.
1 pound ground beef or turkey
1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes, drained
1 packet taco seasoning
1 C cheese, divided
1/4 C salsa verde
15 crunchy taco shells
Shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream, guacamole, lime juice to top
*Allyson added black beans and corn, which I think is a great idea.
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown and drain meat. Stir tomatoes, seasoning, 1/2 C cheese, and salsa into meat. Arrange taco shells standing up in a 9x13" pan. Fill each shell with the meat mixture, dividing equally until all the meat is used. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 C of cheese over the tops of the filled tacos and bake for 15-20 minutes. Cheese will be melted and the meat hot. Top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream, guacamole and lime juice.
