Double Layer Tacos

Layered taco shells and soft tortillas create the "double" with these filling beef and bean-stuffed tacos.
  • Total Time 40 Minutes
  • Spice Level Mild
  • Servings 6
  • Ingredients 10


  • 450g beef mince
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Garlic & Paprika Seasoning Mix for Tacos
  • 180ml water
  • 12 Old El Paso™ Crunchy Taco Shells
  • 12 Old El Paso™ Regular Flour Tortilla Wraps
  • 1 tin (435g) Old El Paso™ Refried Beans
  • To Serve
  • Grated Cheddar cheese
  • Old El Paso™ Thick ‘N’ Chunky Salsa
  • Shredded lettuce


  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the beef mince and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently until browned all over. Drain off any excess fat.
  • Stir in the pepper, taco seasoning mix and water and cook for a further 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Heat the taco shells, flour tortillas and refried beans as directed on the packaging. Spread 2 tablespoons of refried beans onto each flour tortilla, then place a hard taco shell on the centre of each tortilla and gently fold the sides up to match the sides of each taco shell.
  • Divide the beef mixture between the layered tacos and top with a little grated cheese. Serve immediately with the salsa and lettuce.


For an alternative, replace the pepper with 75g of sliced button mushrooms or a drained tin of sweetcorn.

Use the palms of your hands to gently press the soft flour tortilla to the sides of the hard taco shell and hold for a couple of seconds to secure.
