Step 1

Brown the ground beef with onion in a large skillet. COMPLETELY drain all grease and return to skillet. Over low heat, add refried beans, taco seasoning, and about half of the jar of picante sauce (you can eye this to see whats best, you don’t want the filling to be too runny or your tacos will be soggy on the bottoms). Blend well. scoop the beef filling mixture into the tacos (which should be “standing” position on a baking sheet). Sprinkle cheese over the top.

Step 2

Bake preheated 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Serve with remaining taco sauce and your favorite toppings.
