Double-Layer Beef Tacos
This recipe gets its name from the double layer of soft tortillas and hard taco shells stuffed with beef, refried beans, and cheesy goodness. Inspired by the popular fast-food version, our taco is bigger and offers bright, fresh flavors but still puts up better numbers than the drive-through original.
Don't believe us? Here’s what CLD member Andrea Carter had to say: “The Double-Layer Beef Tacos is one of my favorites. I thought, ‘Wow, eat your heart out Taco Bell!’” Say goodbye to boring tacos with this guilt-free favorite that’s perfect for those nights when you want to change up your Taco Tuesday routine.
