FAST 'n EASY BAKED TACOS
Yield: 20 Tacos
What You Need:
2\- 3 pounds ground round
2 boxes Old El Paso Taco Dinner Kit: "Stand 'n Stuff"
8 oz "Four-cheese" shredded Mexican blend(mixture of Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Asadero, and Quesadilla cheeses)
2 chopped tomatoes
2 chopped avocados
5 chopped green onions
flat-leaf parsley or cilantro (garnish)
Add your favorite toppings!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Brown and drain the meat. Add taco seasoning (follow directions on package).
Place empty taco shells in 2 - 9 x 12 baking pans. The "stand 'n stuff" shells will stand up nicely,
making them easy to fill. If you use regular shells, fit them tightly together into the pan. Spoon meat into each shell. Add shredded cheese.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until\cheese has melted.
Meanwhile, chop tomatoes, green onions, and avocados.
Remove tacos from oven.
Garnish. Add taco sauce, if desired.
You can assemble the toppings in bowls, so
friends and family can add what they like. When I'm pressed for time,
I prefer taco "kits," because they include everything, even the sauce.
If you have time, homemade is even better!
