1 teaspoon oil 12 ounces ground beef or pork 15 ounces canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained 1 cup salsa 4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix 8 flour tortillas shredded lettuce diced tomatoes sour cream shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Cover a cookie sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.
In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add meat and cook 4 or 5 minutes or until no longer pink; drain. Add beans, salsa and taco seasoning.
Bring to boil; reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered 5 or 6 minutes, stirring and mashing some of the beans as you stir, until thickened. Spoon meat mixture into center of each tortilla. Fold in half. Press down gently and place on prepared cookie sheet. Coat tortillas with cooking spray. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese as desired.
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.
