Oven Tacos from Beckie:
via Mommy I'm Hungry

2 lbs ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 small can diced green chilies
1 T chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 (8 oz) can low sodium tomato sauce
1 (16 oz) can fat free refried beans
2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese
18-20 hard taco shells

Optional condiments -
Lettuce, shredded
Tomato, diced
sour cream
olives, sliced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion over medium-high heat. Drain off any excess liquid. Return to pan, add chilies, refried beans, tomato sauce and spices. Mix well and cook for a few minutes if mixture seems runny.

Spoon the taco meat mixture into the taco shells and place into a 9x13 inch baking dish, standing up. Sprinkle cheese over the top of the taco meat in each shell. Place into the oven and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the tacos are heated through. Remove from the oven and top with any optional condiments for serving.
