This morning I was scrolling through facebook reading status's from friends and family when all of a sudden this delicious looking taco meal slaps me in the face and makes my stomach growl like I hadn't eaten in a year. This taco meal looked so good that I jumped out of bed and hurried to get ready so I could go to the grocery store and get all of the ingredients necessary to make this dish.
Since I have three boys, two of whom are teenagers, we eat A LOT and I always have to double every recipe. This recipe though, does not need to be doubled. I didn't know this when starting so I doubled it and let me tell you, there is enough food here to feed an army.....or at least a few families.
Here is a list of what you need to make a single recipe of this scrumptious meal.
One can of refried beans...I bought refried black beans because I love black beans so much
One can of tomato sauce
1lb of ground meat....I eat ground turkey
1 package of small flour tortillas
1 package shredded cheese (I buy the Mexican blend)
In the picture above, you see that I bought double of everything and there is no meat in the picture because I had already started frying the meat on my pan and I forgot to put the shredded cheese in the picture.
Here is the mush in the pan. Doesn't look all that good but it tasted great!!!
I have no clue how to rotate this picture lol
This is how I put the meat into the tortillas and got them to stand up in the casserole dish.
I was able to get eight across and then four on the side.
Then I ended up by putting some shredded cheese on top.
I was able to make 35 tacos by doubling this recipe, that's enough to feed a few families!!
Here is the finished product! It was delicious and really easy and fast to make. The boys loved it and so do I. I served this with tater tots as per the boy's request but I would have liked this with some Spanish rice or something like that.
I couldn't find a link on facebook to post on here otherwise I would have done so. A friend shared it and it had been shared so many times that there was no finding out the original post.
