Tasty Baked Tacos Recipe!


This is another Pinterest-inspired post that was originally posted by Blog Chef.  I adapted it to be a bit quicker and easier (and to use ingredients that I almost always have on hand).  I made this for the first time two weeks ago and it was a hit with everyone and so I made it again last night.  This is definitely a new favorite and is totally kid friendly.  It’s something different from your traditional tacos and it’s really easy to throw together, too!

Here’s my recipe:

Tasty Baked Tacos!
Cuisine: Mexican
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 6-8

Easy tacos you bake in the oven!
  • 1 lb ground beef (I use the 93/7)
  • 1 can refried beans (I use fat free)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • ½ cup to 1 cup salsa of your choice
  • 1 package hard taco shells
  • 4 oz shredded cheese

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Brown the ground beef in a skillet.
  3. Drain and add the taco seasoning (follow the directions on the packet of the taco seasoning and include water, too)
  4. Once the taco seasoning is well mixed, add the beans and stir well.
  5. Add the salsa and simmer on low until everything is well mixed.
  6. Fill each taco shell with the meat and bean mixture and place upright in a 9X13 baking dish. Once you have filled all of the shells, sprinkle the cheese over the top and bake for 10-12 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  7. Top with your favorite toppings (sour cream, lettuce, guacamole, tomatoes, salsa, etc.) and serve!



  1. This sounds like a great recipe. Just wondering, do the tacos get soggy?

    • Dana we have made it several times now and they have never gotten soggy. I basically keep them in there just long enough for the cheese to melt.

    • I’ve made a very similar recipe. Be sure to drain the meat. And I have put cheese in the taco shell first, then meat. That seems to reduce any sogginess. Of course, then you need extra cheese! 😉
