Crispy and crunchy these double deluxe tacos have everything that a taco lover is looking for. Double the taco goodness! A hard taco shell filled with spicy beef wrapped with a flour tortilla then spread with refried beans. Finish it off by sprinkling with cheese and bake. Top with crunchy lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. Don’t wait for Taco Tuesday to enjoy these.
For the start of June, I’m living for these fruity, lemon, citrus and bright beers. Nothing heavy just delicious and makes me think of sitting on a beach, getting a tan then taking a nap in the middle of the afternoon. Chicka Chicka Yeah from Odd Side Ales is the perfect beer for just that. Similar to my favorite beer, Dirty Blonde, but different enough to feel like it’s not a repeat.
Then for this Mitten Movie Night, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is back so we must binge!! Sadly this is the first half of the last season of this adorable show. If your a fan of The Office, Parks & Recreation or 30 Rock I think you will love this show too. Now on to these double deluxe tacos!
Start by browning the pound of ground hamburger. Cook through until no longer pink, around 8-10 minutes. Then drain the grease from the pan. To the beef add the water, beef base, tomato bouillon, cumin and chili powder. Cook medium heat until the bouillon has dissolved and the sauce is reduced which just takes about 4 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and great an 8″x11″ pan the set up the assembly line. With a knife spread the refried beans over the flour tortilla shells. Place a hard shell in the center of the flour tortilla then add some the beef to the middle of that. Place the finished taco in the pan and repeat until all 6 of them are done. I found that 6 was the perfect amount for the beans and meat ratio.
What should I do with those extra taco shells then?
I always like to have tortillas on hand since my 4 yr old loves cheesy roll-ups. Just add cheese and some chili powder then microwave for 20 seconds and lunch is served. With a side of fruit, it’s perfect for busy days.
Once all the tacos are assembled top them off with cheese then put them into the oven to bake for 15 minutes. Chop up some lettuce, tomatoes and any other toppings you like. Open up some sour cream to top off these double deluxe tacos. And here you are…..
