Baked Tacos

As we just finished a meal where half of it was considered inedible by the under 13 crowd in my house, I relish those opportunities when everyone likes dinner for that evening.  This is one of those recipes.  I like to serve these baked tacos with Grill Side Garden Salad on top, which of course my daughters conveniently leave off but you could also top with just sour cream, salsa, tomatoes or anything else that sounds good.

Baked Tacos

2 lbs ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 can 15oz refried beans
1 5 ounce can tomato sauce
3 Tbsp taco seasoning
2 c shredded Cheddar/Monterrey jack cheese
20 Hard Taco Shells

1. Brown the ground beef and chopped onion, then drain.
2. Stir in the refried beans, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning.
3. Put a big spoonful of bean mixture into each shell and stand them upright in a greased 9 x 13 pan.
4. Sprinkle cheese over the bean mixture in each taco shell.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Top with Grill Side Garden Salad or other favorite taco toppings.
