This recipe is super simple. I am sure you all remember the delicious double decker tacos Taco Bell used to have. (they might still have them...i don't eat out much!) There is just something about the crunchy shell with the soft tortilla, the meat and the cheese and the beans all together. As you can see from the picture i splurged and had sour cream! IT WAS SOOO GOOD! i put spinach on it to make up for it :). I don't have step by step instruction pictures for this one, in fact i had to clear a place off of the covered table to even get a picture. i was shuffling dishes and papers and high chairs and condiments and well you get the picture...it was crazy at our house during dinner time. i got one though, i did take a bite out of the other side though because I WAS STARVING! and double decker tacos are one of those things that you need to eat right away so that the shell maintains it's crunch.These are delicious, filling, inexpensive and you can make them using yesterdays leftover pinto beans.



1 lb ground beef
1 package taco seasoning (or a mixture of chili powder, onion and garlic powder, salt, and cumin)
1 small diced onion
Grated Cheese
Taco Shells (we used Old El Paso Super Stuffers)


Flour Tortillas about the same size. (we used Mission Medium Soft Taco)

This combination worked great!

Refried Beans (we used left over Pinto Beans that i blended in the blender)
Condiments (sour cream, cabbage, spinach, hot sauce, salsa, whatever you want to stuff in there.)

Dice onion and cook over medium heat until it begins to brown, add beef and taco seasoning or spices at the same time. Cook until all beef is brown.

Stuff taco shells with beef and grated cheese. Place on middle rack of oven, under broiler until cheese melts and shells are slightly brown. Remove from oven. (careful they cook extrememly fast!)

Warm tortillas either in microwave or skillet. Spread beans on one side and place crispy shell inside. Fill with fixins and enjoy! (Eat soon after preparing to maintain crunch factor.) 

What is your favorite taco sauce? 

We used Tapatio yesterday, but there are sooo many good ones out there!
