Welcome to another Make It Monday! Going to be honest here… I had NO idea what to call this one. AND, I originally saw it on TikTok, thought I saved the video… but NOPE.

So I had to try to remember what I needed for this one.  Thankfully, it’s not too complicated!

Here’s my Baked Tacos!

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 2 pounds of ground meat.  I had about 1.25 pounds of turkey meat for mine
  • 1-2 packets of taco seasoning (depending on how much meat you have!)
  • 8 oz. Cream cheese (I used 4 ounces for the amount of meat I had.)
  • Shredded Cheddar- I never really measure out. Measure with your heart!
  • Tortillas – I used 16 small flour tortillas.

How To:

  • Brown your meat and drain the grease
  • Add in taco seasoning packet(s)– add water as directed on packet
  • Let simmer for a few minutes
  • Add in cream cheese and let melt
  • Add in shredded cheddar
  • Lightly grease a baking sheet
  • Fill tortillas with meat mixture, add extra cheese if desired
  • Roll up and place on pan
  • Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, or until the tortillas are slightly browned.

And you’re done! You can add toppings if you like… I actually thought about drizzling some queso on top- but I refrained (this time)!

While it’s basically just “tacos”… the cream cheese definitely added a creamy, unique flavor.  And baking them sealed them up, making it easier to eat than normal tacos, plus it added a crispiness to it, without being a crunchy taco!

I know last week and this week, the recipes were taco/Mexican food themed.  I’ll try to find something else for next week!  Happy Monday!  Let me know if you give this one a try!
