I can’t explain how much I love our new oven. There have been so many recipes that I have been dying to try and so far they have all been complete knockouts! Last night I tried an oven baked taco recipe I have had my eye on. I simplified the recipe a bit and they were absolutely dynamite. I kept the tacos themselves very basic and then laid out the table with everyones favorite toppings so they could customize their tacos after they had been baked.


  • 1 lb. Ground Hamburger (80/20 is my fave)
  • 1 Package Taco Seasoning
  • 12 oz. Refried Beans
  • 1 Package Taco Rice
  • 12 oz. Tomato Sauce
  • 1/4 C. Ortega Medium Taco Sauce
  • 8 Eight Inch Flour Tortillas
  • Monterey Jack Shredded Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large skillet cook hamburger according to directions on taco seasoning package.
  3. Stir in tomato sauce and taco sauce.
  4. In a small pot heat refried beans until smooth for about 3 min over medium heat.
  5. In a large bowl combine rice, meat and beans to create taco filling.
  6. Scoop about one cup of  filling into each taco shell.
  7. Grease a large/deep baking dish and stack shells in dish side by side.
  8. Sprinkle each taco with cheese.
  9. Bake in the oven for 10 min.
  10. Serve with your favorite taco fixings.
