Quick Meatloaf Tacos

This ground beef recipe has a lot going for it -- it’s flavourful, fast and easy to cook.

You can even freeze individual slices right in the taco shell to get a quick microwaveable lunch or dinner to go!

Reheat 45 to 60 seconds right in the shell — no more lunch or dinner blues for you or your family!

·         1 lb. Lean Ground Beef
·         1 taco kit (275 g pack)
·         ½ can (14 oz.) refried beans
·         ½ cup    dry bread crumbs
·         ½ cup EACH frozen corn and diced sweet red pepper
·         ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Taco fixings (optional): shredded lettuce, salsa, sliced green onion, diced tomato

1.       Combine beef, refried beans, bread crumbs, kit seasoning mix and ¼ cup of the kit salsa. Press into lightly greased foil-lined loaf pan.
2.       Combine remaining salsa, corn, and peppers. Sprinkle on top of meat loaf. Bake in 400°F oven for 40 to 50 minutes until digital rapid-read thermometer inserted into centre of loaf reads 160°F (71°C). Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Let stand for 10 minutes.
3.       Meanwhile, heat kit taco shells according to the package directions. Use foil to lift meat loaf from pan. Cut into 12 slices, placing one slice into each taco shell. Garnish with taco fixings (if desired).

Happy Cooking
