Baked Taco Sheet Pan

Success! You're on the list.

Who is waiting for Tuesday to roll around to eat tacos? Not us. This is the only way I want to eat tacos now. Baked Taco Sheet Pan takes your average joe tacos and takes them up a notch. You can make them as dinner or as an appetizer. My kids love them, my husband loves them and I love them. It is just taking the one extra step to bake the tacos and it makes them so much better.

More meals loved by my family: Almond Pesto Chicken, Crockpot Chili, Chicken Nuggets with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce and Sloppy Joes.

My main goal is to bring families back to the kitchen table enjoying homemade meals. I don’t want it to feel overwhelming or like it has to be these extravagant meals that use every dish that you own.

More doable family meals: Sloppy Joe Pasta Casserole, Sheet Pan Dinner, Creamy Sausage Pasta and White Sauce Chicken Enchiladas.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 6 large soft shells


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cook ground beef with taco seasoning according to seasoning packet.
  3. Place soft shells on parchment paper. Slightly overlapping the shells so that you can fold them up like an envelope. So, you can enclose all the taco ingredients.
  4. Once ground beef is cooked spread it evenly on the center of your soft tacos. Leaving the sides of the shells out so you can fold them in.
  5. Add diced tomatoes if you wish.
  6. Add 2 cups shredded cheese.
  7. Fold the sides of the shells in. Completely covering the shredded cheese.
  8. Place in oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Until cheese is completely melted.
  9. Set on broil and broil for 3 to 4 minutes. This makes the top nice and crispy. Be so careful not to burn your tacos though.
  10. Let slightly cool for about 5-7 minutes. Using a pizza slicer cut strips. The longer you let it cool the more intact it will stay as you slice it.
  11. Enjoy with salsa and sour cream!


I have added in lettuce before, but the lettuce gets pretty soggy when you bake it. So, you definitely can add lettuce just know it will be soggy. Also, using a pizza slicer is the easiest way to cut it up!
