Taco Bell's Double Decker Tacos
After finishing "high school" (I was home-educated), I worked at a local Taco Bell restaurant for nearly 2 years. I had a lot of fun working there, and really missed the (free) food after Joshua and I married and moved to another state.
But, my kitchen skills are some stiff competition for Taco Bell "food". No, I don't really miss their food any more, as we're spoiled with much healthier and tasty options at home! :)
We've made our own chalupas, which were very tasty, but not healthy and a bit of work. An easier homemade treat is Double Decker Tacos.
Here's what you need to make these delicious Double Decker Tacos:
Corn or flour tortillas, hot
Hard taco shells
Refried beans, warmed
Lettuce, shredded or finely chopped
Cheddar cheese, shredded
Lightly cook some corn tortillas on a griddle or in a heavy skillet. (Easy, frugal, and YUM!) Or, use taco-sized flour tortillas, warmed.
Fry some ground beef with onions and season using my taco salad recipe, or your favorite taco seasonings (just DON'T leave out cumin!) or a seasoning packet.
Assemble Double Decker tacos by spreading a thin layer of refried beans over a corn tortilla. Place hard taco shell on tortilla and wrap so beans are between the tortilla and the taco shell.
Layer in taco the seasoned ground beef, sour cream, lettuce, shredded cheese, and diced tomato. Enjoy! :)
What's your favorite food from Taco Bell? My #1 fave is their Cheesy Gordita Crunch, followed by any chalupa. :)
