This is a Pintrest recipe modified. Original link here: http://creolecontessa.com/2016/05/baked-fajita-tacos/

These are delicious. I may play with the recipe next time and make a tomatillo salsa for topping. Quick, simple, makes a lot, and yummy. What else  could you want in a meal? Also, this is a great make-ahead meal that can just be baked when you’re ready.

Time: 30 minutes

Effort level: Low. I mean you have to cut the veggies so there’s some.

Amount: 10 tacos

You need:

  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 green bell pepper – chopped
  • 1 poblano pepper – chopped
  • 1 onion – chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1/2 Tbl Chili powder
  • 1/2 Tbl Creole or similar seasoning
  • 1/2 Tbl Oregano
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • Oil (Canola, veggie, olive, etc…)
  • Hard shell taco shells (I used the flat bottom ones for easy assembly)
  • Cheese of choice (We prefer Queso fresco when doing Mexican cuisine)

Do this:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Place oil of choice (~1 Tbl) in large skillet and saute the peppers and onion until softened (~10 minutes)
  3. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute
  4. Add the beef and seasoning. Cook until meat is fully cooked through.
  5. Optional step: Drain the meat and veggies 
  6. STOP HERE IF MAKING AHEAD! 
  7. Line a baking pan with your taco shells and stuff with the filling.
  8. Add the cheese and bake in a 375 oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  9. Enjoy!
