Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 15 mins
Total: 45 mins


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 oz taco seasoning mix, divided
  • 16 oz refried beans, (1 can)
  • cup water
  • 12 crisp taco shells, prepared
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 fresh lime, juiced
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 12 flour tortillas, (7-inch)
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup lettuce, shredded
  • 1 tomato, large, chopped
  • ¼ red onion, chopped
  • ½ cup sour cream


  1. Place the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, and sprinkle about ¾ of the packet of taco seasoning over the meat. Cook and stir the ground beef, breaking it up as it cooks, for 10 to 15 minutes until the beef is browned and crumbly. Drain the excess grease.

  2. Mash the refried beans with the water in a small saucepan, and sprinkle with the rest of the seasoning packet. Heat the refried beans over low heat until simmering.
  3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Place the crisp taco shells on a baking sheet and warm them in the preheated oven for 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. To make the guacamole, peel, seed, and mash the avocados in a bowl with sour cream, lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste, and set aside.

To Assemble:

  1. Spread each flour tortilla with about 2 tablespoons of heated refried beans. Wrap the tortilla gently around a crisp tortilla shell.

  2. Spread about 2 tablespoons of ground beef along the bottom of the crisp shell, and sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of shredded Cheddar cheese on top of the meat. Top the cheese with shredded lettuce, a sprinkle of chopped tomato and onion, and a dollop of sour cream and guacamole.

  3. Serve and enjoy.
