- 10-11 taco shells I use the type with the flat bottom
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1 lb ground beef I use 90-93% lean
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 can refried beans
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 1/2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
- 1 tub Rojo's Homestyle Fresh Cut Salsa
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the taco shells inside a 9"x13" baking pan.
- Heat the oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking up with a spoon.
- Stir in the tomato sauce, taco seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 3-4 minutes.
- Divide the refried beans evenly among the bottoms of the taco shells. Top the beans with the ground beef mixture.
- Divide the cheese among the taco shells. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and taco shells are lightly browned.
- Remove from the oven. Top the tacos with lettuce and Rojo's Homestyle Fresh Cut Salsa and serve immediately.
