    These are so delicious. I used grass fed ground beef and i used only a little bit of water when i returned the cooked meat and taco seasoning to the skillet. I used doctored up black beans instead of refried beans and the tomato sauce makes tge meat moist and more rich in flavor. Baking them in the oven is a great idea. I will definitely make these again.

    Amazing. Used all the ingredients except that i used 4oz of tomato sauce. This didnt cause the shells to be soggy. Added the olives to the meat, beans, onions, tomato sauce, and chilies mix. Once out of oven layered chunky salsa, lettuce, tomato/onions and place guac on one side of the shell and sour cream on the other. Way more filler then you would get at taco bell. It does get all over the place, but if it didnt it doesnt belong in the face. Yum : ).

    I LOVE it! It’s great how the taco shells absorb the seasoning baking. It’s really hard to moderate eating these. My adjustment to the recipe is adding cayenne and red pepper flakes to the seasoning mix. Yum!

    The flavor was good but the taco turned out to be a little bit soggy.

    It turned out great! I’ve always used the old El Paso taco kit but making my own taco seasoning was easy and it was super tasty!

    Good but need a taco rack so the bottoms don’t get soggy.
