  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 2–3 Tbsp homemade taco seasoning or 1 packet store-bought taco seasoning
  • 1–2 cups shredded cheese
  • 15-20 hard taco shells
  • Salsa, sour cream, and other taco toppings optional


  • Brown the ground beef, then drain off any fat. Stir the refried beans, tomato sauce, and seasoning into the browned beef.
  • Spoon the beef mixture into your taco shells, and line them up in a 9x13” pan.
  • When the pan is full, sprinkle the top with a nice layer of shredded cheese.
  • Put the pan in your oven, and bake at 400°F for 10-12 minutes (or until they’re heated through the cheese is melted.) Top with your taco fixings of choice, and serve!
