Oven Baked Tacos (Gluten Free)

Ok so you made my last post (Crockpot Cranberry Pork Tenderloin) and now you’re wondering what to do with the leftovers (granted there actually ARE leftovers, cause it really is that good! LOL) This is a quick and easy way to use up the leftovers and have a delicious meal in minutes! Your meat is already cooked and practically shredding itself. If you don’t have any left you can use whatever ground meat you want and cook it accordingly. Simply mix in with the rest of the ingredients and bake. Very simple and quick to make….but VERY yummy and filling. Everyone has their own go-to fillings and toppings for tacos, and I’m pretty restricted so i don’t add a lot to mine, but feel free to add whatever you want to spice it up a little. To go dairy free you can sub out the cheese for soy cheese or just omit it. I splurged on it even tho i probably shouldn’t have! LOL. But, I’m sure any way you make these, they’re gonna be pretty darn tasty so have at it and enjoy! 🙂
