Who doesn’t love tacos?? I love this baked, casserole style version because my family can just add their toppings and pick up and eat! Plus the melted cheese over the meat really takes these tacos up a notch.
Oven Baked Tacos with Homemade Crispy Taco Shells
1 pound 99% fat free ground turkey
3 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
3/4 cup shredded cheese
toppings for tacos – chopped tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, etc
For the taco shells
10 corn tortillas
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wrap 5 corn tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave for 30 seconds. Repeat with the other 5. Lightly brush each side with olive oil (or spray with misto) and drape each shell directly over two bars of your oven rack. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until crispy.
Brown meat, add 2/3 cup water and taco seasoning. Stir and simmer for about 3-4 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Set aside. Arrange taco shells standing up in a 9 x 13-inch pan. Fill each shell with the ground turkey, dividing equally until all the meat is used. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top of the meat. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Top with your favorite taco toppings and serve!
