Quick & Easy Beef Tacos

(Recipe by Miranda Mowbray, Biting Life)


Ingredients (makes 6 tacos):

1lb ground beef

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 cup tomato sauce

1 cup refried beans

cooking spray

6 small flour tortillas

2 tbsp light sour cream

1/4 cup shredded taco-blend cheese



Preheat oven to 375˚.

Cook ground beef with canola oil in a sauté pan with high sides, breaking up meat with a spatula.

Once there is only a tiny bit of pink meat left, turn heat to low.

Add all spices, tomato sauce, and refried beans to pan.

Stir the mixture until the refried beans have full integrated with the rest of the ingredients.

Prepare a glass 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray.

Spread a small amount of sour cream onto each tortilla.

Carefully arrange tortillas in the baking dish, so that they are standing up in taco shape (like the picture).

Spoon the beef mixture evenly into each taco.

Sprinkle each taco with a small amount of shredded cheese.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cheese has completely melted and tortillas are golden-brown on top.

Using a spatula, carefully transfer tacos to plates. Enjoy!
