I have had leftover refried beans sitting in my fridge for about a week. I thought it was about time that I better used them before they turned into a science experiment. We love tacos so that part was easy. However I wanted to put a twist on them. I found this recipe while perusing the internet. Perfection! BAP and SSP each eat 2 or 3. They loved them. I loved that I was able to hide some veggies (and they did not notice).

In a large pot brown together turkey with onion. Add beans, taco seasoning and tomatoes. Stir until thickened. Place meat mixture evenly in taco shells. Top with cheese. Place in a greased 9x13pan with openings up. Bake at 400 for about 25minutes or until lightly browned/toasted (you can do as little as 15minutes).
