Baked Tacos


To assemble these tacos quickly and efficiently, place all readied ingredients in front of you. That way, the filling and folding can be accomplished in minutes. For a change of taste, use refried pinto beans. Serve the baked tacos with a light salad of watercress, orange sections and nuts.
