Makes: About 10 tacos
1 lb lean ground beef (or turkey/chicken)
1/2 small onion diced
1/2 small can diced green chilies
1/2 pkg taco seasoning
1/2 (8 ounce) can low sodium tomato sauce
1/2 (16 ounce) can fat free refried beans
1 cups shredded reduced fat Colby-jack cheese
10-12 hard taco shells (the ones with the flat bottom would probably be easier for standing up in the dish)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large skillet brown ground beef and onion over medium-high heat. Drain off any excess liquid. Return to pan, add chilies, refried beans, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning. Mix well and cook for a few minutes if mixture seems runny.
Spoon the taco meat mixture into the taco shells and place into a baking dish, standing up. Sprinkle cheese over the top of the taco meat in each shell. Place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the tacos are heated through.
Remove from the oven and top with any optional condiments for serving. *Note: Be careful removing tacos from baking dish. They will stick together a bit, so you might need to use a knife to separate them to avoid breaking.
