REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

Since you mash the beans to thicken the meat mixture, using refried beans is a great alternative. I didn't use cooking spray but rather olive oil spray (you could brush on oil as well). Very easy recipe! Warning: these are VERY filling!

I had never seen a recipe for baked soft tacos before. The kids had fun assembling them with me. We enjoyed it a lot. I used refried beans though instead of the pintos.
