I took the others advice since i do like a spicier meat and used a taco seasoning mix and it was great! I make a similiar recipe without the baking that i am posting.
I love these! I used my recipe for Taco Meat (which is a copycat for Taco Bell's beef) - if has a fine texture, and works well. Thanks for posting this!
Yummy!!! I substituted Taco Seasoning mix instead of the individual ingredients and added sour cream on top after it came out of the oven, but it was definitely home-made heavenly!
This recipe tasted great! It was easy to make. I added taco seasoning, (approx. 1/4 pkg.) instead of the recipe's spices. I will make this again. Thanks for the recipe!!
This recipe is EXCELLENT, it tastes so good and is easy to make. The meat mixture was a bit bland. Next time I would just use a taco seasoning packet rather than making the meat mixture by scratch. Other than that, I can't wait to make this again!
This is sooo good. My family loved it, even my very picky 5-year old.
I will add a 5 star rating to all the others. My family loved this! I did as many of the others suggested and used taco seasoning instead of the seasoning listed. I also did not fry my tortillas I sprayed them with cooking spray (both sides) and baked them at 375 until they were crispy. I had to turn them once one side was crispy to crisp the other side. I also used homemade refried beans we had leftover. We will make this again and again. Also I wanted to say that we made about 8 pizzas and I had meat leftover. It is nice to know that you can stretch this recipe to go a little farther when feeding a crowd. :) Thanks for sharing.
My first job was at Taco Bell 20 years ago. This is pretty close to spot on. Very good. Also, TB does NOT use corn tortillas for this item, just a thicker flour tortilla.
This recipe saved my life. I was pregnant and living overseas where they *gasp* do not have Taco Bell!!! Naturally since I couldn't get it anywhere in that or any of the surrounding countries - that's what I was craving most. This recipe is so close to the real thing it exactly hit the spot and kept me from creating an international incident. :) Thanks for posting!
For even more TB authenticity, try doubling up the cumin and using horsemeat with card board fillers.
