  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 10 hard taco shells I recommend Stand 'n' Stuff with the flat bottom
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 to mato chopped
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • Optional: mayo, pickles or bacon


  • In a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion until browned. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in barbecue sauce.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line taco shells up in a pan -- you will want just enough room so they don't fall over! I used 2 8x8" pans and had 5 in each.
  • Divide beef between shells. Top with cheese and bake for 10 minutes until cheese is melted and tacos are heated through.
  • Remove from the oven and top as desired with tomato, lettuce, mayo, pickles or cooked bacon as desired.


To make ahead, cook ground beef and onion and combine with salt, pepper and barbecue sauce. Store in the fridge until ready to serve, then assemble tacos, bake and serve.
*Always be sure to check your ingredients to ensure they are certified gluten-free before serving people with allergies or Celiac disease
