  • 1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning (below)
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (16 ounce) can fat-free refried beans
  • 2 cups shredded reduced fat colby-monterey jack cheese
  • 18 -20 taco shells, hard

1. To make taco seasoning, mix all of the ingredients together. Store in an airtight container.

2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

3. In a large skillet brown ground beef and onion over medium-high heat. Drain off any excess liquid. Return to pan, add chilies, refried beans, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning. Mix well and cook for a few minutes if mixture seems runny.
