Beef Taco Boats

YIELDS: 4 / TOTAL TIME: 30 MINS

INGREDIENTS:

4 medium flour tortillas

Uncooked rice

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic

1 lb. ground beef

1 tsp. chili powder

1/4 tsp. paprika

Kosher salt & ground black pepper

Shredded lettuce

1/2 c. shredded cheddar

Pico de gallo

Guacamole

Sour cream

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Shape a large piece of foil (smaller than the size of your tortillas) into a boat. Place one tortilla inside foil boat so that the perimeter of tortilla comes up the sides. Repeat to make 4 boats. Fill each boat with rice.

  2. Bake until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Let cool in foil until ready to serve.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Add ground beef, chili powder, and paprika and season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until beef is no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat.

  4. Remove rice and foil from tortilla boats and fill each with ground beef. Top with lettuce, cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole, and sour cream.
