I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Baked Double Decker Tacos

This makes 6 soft and crunchy beef tacos for Taco Tuesday or anyday. The soft tortilla holds everything together making these the least-messy tacos you've ever eaten!

1 lb lean ground beef
1/3 cup diced onion
2 tbsps diced celery
2 cups salsa
4 tbsps taco seasoning
1/2 can refried beans
6 medium-sized whole wheat soft tortillas
6 crunchy taco shells
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup hummus

Brown beef along with the onion and celery in a skillet. Drain if needed, then add 1 cup of the salsa and 3 tbsps of taco seasoning.

Warm the refried beans and add the remaining 1 tbsp of taco seasoning.

Lay the soft tortillas out on your work surface. Spread the refried beans on half of each tortilla. Spread hummus on the other half.

Stand the taco shells up in the middle and fill with the beef mixture.

Wrap the soft tortilla up onto the taco shell and sit in an 11 X 8" baking dish that has been prepared with cooking spray.

Top with cheese and bake in a 375 F oven for 15-20 minutes.

Serve with the remaining salsa, sour cream and chopped lettuce, tomato, red pepper and cucumbers.
