Double Decker Tacos

These tacos were so fun! I didn't make the guacamole this time because avocados were too pricey but I think that would add another level of tastiness!

1 pound ground beef
1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning mix, divided
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
12 prepared crisp taco shells
2 avocados
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 fresh lime, juiced
salt and black pepper to taste
12 (7 inch) flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, chopped
1/4 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup sour cream


Place the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, and sprinkle about 3/4 of the packet of taco seasoning over the meat. Cook and stir the ground beef, breaking it up as it cooks, until the beef is browned and crumbly, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the excess grease.
Mash the refried beans in a small saucepan, and sprinkle with the rest of the seasoning packet. Heat the refried beans over low heat until simmering.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Place the crisp taco shells on a baking sheet, and warm them in the preheated oven for 3 to 5 minutes.
To make the guacamole, peel, seed, and mash the avocados in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of sour cream, the lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste, and set aside.
To build the tacos, spread each flour tortilla with about 2 tablespoons of heated refried beans. Wrap the tortilla gently around a crisp tortilla shell. Spread about 2 tablespoons of ground beef along the bottom of the crisp shell, and sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of shredded Cheddar cheese on top of the meat. Top the cheese with shredded lettuce, a sprinkle of chopped tomato and onion, and a dollop of sour cream and guacamole.

What a fun idea! Whenever I treat myself to Taco Bell, which is not very often, I always get their double decker tacos. Never thought about making them myself, how easy. Thanks!
