    Oven Tacos and Homemade Taco Seasoning

    Bake your tacos for a delicious and easy weeknight meal!

    If you have read this blog for any amount of time, my love of taco-related dishes is pretty obvious. Note: see here, here, here and here.  

    I could eat them everyday.No joke.

    Actually, if possible, chocolate and tacos would be about all my family would consume. The chocolate they would go along with. The tacos? Mmph, not so much. I know! Craziness. For some reason, they would get sick of them?? Although, my oldest is a taco lover too and will always agree to tacos for dinner, lunch, a snack or whenever she can get them. She’s such a good kid.👍

    These particular tacos are a whole family favorite.  They are simple and give a little twist to your regular tacos. Baking them in the oven gives them an extra crunch and the melted cheese is just heavenly.

    Once they are baked, top them with your favorite taco accessories…tomatoes, onions, olives, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, etc.  Also, for a little added kick, we baked some of ours with nacho cheese flavored taco shells,

    Oven Tacos are too good to pass up..make them a favorite at your house too!
