While the entire east coast was getting pounded with snow, my family and I decided to make an impromptu trip up to Sugar Mountain in Boone, NC. Growing up in West Virginia has made me a semi-professional at driving in the snow and makes me fearless about the weather unlike the majority of people down here in Chapel Hill. Before a flake of snow dropped on Thursday, UNC-CH had canceled class on Friday. Thankfully we were able to leave Thursday night and head up to the mountains avoiding all possible delays. (Friends came up the next day and had an extra 3 hours added onto their trip…no thanks)
Not being 100% sure of how bad the road conditions actually were going to be we packed enough food for the weekend to avoid going out to eat. I had heard great things about this baked taco recipe and was eager to give it a try. We of course made the best meal first. It was already semi-prepared so the final steps were super easy–the whole thing is actually pretty simple to make.
Step 1: Brown the taco meat of your choosing with a package of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning.
Step 2: Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Step 3: Line a baking pan with small tortillas (taco style) and put the meat inside.
Step 4: Cover the tacos with as much cheese as you choose. In my opinion the more the merrier.
Step 5: Put the tacos in the oven and let it bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted.
