I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Oven Baked Tacos

If you don't like a messy, crumbly taco then these double decker tacos are for you. Crunchy shells wrapped in corn tortillas to hold everything together! For best results make these right before dinnertime and serve immediately. 

2 kale leaves, chopped well
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp onion powder
1 cup diced red pepper
2 tbsps taco seasoning, store bought or homemade, see note below)
a few drops of Tabasco sauce
6 hard taco shells
6 - 6" soft corn tortillas
1/2 cup refried beans
1 cup salsa, divided
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

Place the chopped kale in a saucepan with a little bit of water. Bring to a boil then turn off the heat. Once the kale has wilted, drain and squeeze out the water with your hands.  Set aside.
Brown beef and red pepper in a skillet then add onion powder and taco seasoning. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then add the kale and 1/2 cup salsa. Heat through.

Now to assemble... I used these Stand and Stuff Ranch Blasted taco shells (I really didn't taste much difference from plain shells). Take a soft corn tortilla spread with refried beans and wrap it around a hard shell.

Divide the filling in 6 portions and spoon into the hard shell. Stand it in the baking dish. When they are all stuffed top them with shredded cheese.

Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes.

Then add your favourite taco toppings like more salsa, chopped lettuce, diced tomatoes or sour cream. But my all time favourite to add is CAESAR salad dressing! For real!

Serve with a side of rice and peas and you're good to go!
