Crispy Beef and Bean Tacos

Crispy Beef and Bean Tacos

These were a throw together recipe. I had no clue what was going to be for dinner this night. I opened my fridge found some leftover ground beef, an opened can of refried beans, half an onion and a few other ingredients that I always have on hand. Through it all together and this will be a recipe on repeat. 

Taco Tuesday is one of my favorite days of the week. I could literally eat tacos daily. I loved this easy recipe, and it came together in no time. 

If you need a new recipe for taco Tuesday this should be your next one to make.

 

Here is what you will need:

  • Air fryer or oven
  • Onion
  • Ground beef
  • Taco seasonings
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • fat free refried beans
  • Mission ultra thin yellow corn tortillas
  • Lettuce 
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Bolthouse cilantro avocado yogurt dressing
  • Non fat Greek yogurt

This is one of the air fryers from Go Wise that is a MASSIVE size and works amazing. Click HERE for the one I use. 

 

Nothing special about these diced onions. Just make sure they are to your liking when it comes to the size of the dice. 

Lean ground beef is great to use when you need a leaner option. It definitely needs seasoning but when it’s made correctly it is no different than any other beef.  

Here are the only seasonings I use from Dak’s Spices. What I love so much about Dak’s is the no salt added to the spice mixes, you are in control of the salt. If you’d like to use or try them, use code CHEFALLIE for a discount at Dak’s Spices

This is a great seasoning that is at Trader Joe’s it gives am amazing flavor to any kind of taco dish. It is inexpensive and the flavor is wonderful. 

For all of my cilantro lovers, it is a necessity in any taco dish recipe. 

Kettle & Fire is a wonderful brand. If you’ve never tried Kettle & Fire and would like to try them, use code CHEFALLIESKITCHEN or click HERE for discount to the site. 

These Mission brand ultra thin corn tortillas are the best. They are lower in calories and WW points plus they are a better option for making homemade tortilla chips as well.

 

 

You can use any kind of fat free refried beans; I get mine from Aldi. 

Here is how to make them:

  1. In a sauté pan first sauté the onions until translucent
  2. Add the ground beef
  3. Season the beef and cook until brown
  4. Add the beef broth as needed to keep it from burning and to add moisture back into the ground beef
  5. Add the refried beans and more broth if needed 
  6. Set the air fryer to 420 degrees
  7. Take the ultra-thin corn tortillas and distribute the beef mixture evenly on one side of the tortillas
  8. Sprinkle an even amount of cheese to each tortilla as well
  9. Close the tortillas up, spray the tops and place into the air fryer 
  10. Cook for about 6-8 minutes or until nice and golden brown and crispy
  11. Serve along a side of lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers with the dressing
