In these double decker tacos, soft tortillas are spread with re-fried beans and wrapped around a regular beef taco! A Taco Bell favorite made at home!
I really like when I get to put “double decker” in a recipe title.
It suggests that whatever-it-is, is substantial and doubly delicious. And just think with these tacos, gone are the days that when you bite into your hard shell and the bottom splits open and the fillings of your taco fall out onto your plate. Gone. I. Say!
These are perfect dinner for those nights you really don’t feel like pouring your heart and soul into a meal. Which sometimes is every night for me. :/
To be honest… I really don’t know why I’m posting this recipe. It’s a little ridiculous actually, because they’re CRAZY easy. Like why-in-the-heck-does-this-need-to-be-blogged easy, let alone for me to show you step-by-step on how to make them… but here I am and here they are! My homemade version of a Taco Bell favorite, the double-decker taco.
To Make These Double Decker Tacos You Will Need:
- ground beef
- taco seasoning
- unbleached all-purpose flour
- crispy corn shells
- refried beans
- soft flour tortillas
- cheddar cheese
Next, a little over a pound of lean hamburger into a skillet.
Once every crumble is cooked thoroughly…. add in the taco seasoning.
And then tablespoon of flour. Give it a stir so the fat can absorb the flour, cook for a minute or two… to cook the flour a little bit.
Then add in the 1/4 cup of water…
And then stir. The flour, fat and water will thicken the seasonings into sauciness! Turn the heat down to low to keep warm and get working the “decker” part.
Next, grab a package of ten corn taco shells.
Then find something to stand them up in… I’m using a 9×13 baking pan.
Next grab the meat mixture….
And then fill up the shells evenly!
Meanwhile, when the meat was cooking I heated up some re-fried beans.
Next, spread some warm beans onto a small flour tortilla.
Then lay the filled taco onto the bean-smeared shell.
And then press on with the rest of the tacos.
Then grab some toppings.
Finally, now you can dig in!
