Baked Sriracha Beef Tacos

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's hard to believe that it is December 1st already! Wow. How did that happen so quickly? While I enjoy Thanksgiving I am definitely done with Turkey for a while! For dinner tonight I decided on an old favorite of mine as well as my husbands. Baked Sriracha Beef Tacos. Super simple and delicious. What's not to love when you combine the spicy kick of the sriracha along with lots of yummy cheese!

Baked Sriracha Beef Tacos
Makes 12 Tacos
WW PP=4 (per taco)
Cal 135, Carbs 7, Fat 7.5g, Fiber 1g, Protein 11.2

1lb lean ground beef
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tbsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. sriracha
1.25 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar
12 hard shell tacos
shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream (for toppings)

Arrange taco shells in a baking dish.

Over medium high heat brown ground beef, drain. Add in the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and sriracha. Turn heat to low and let simmer 5-7 minutes. Stirring occasionally.

To assemble tacos, divide filling evenly between tacos. Top with shredded cheddar. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and taco shells are nicely browned and crispy. Top with any additional toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
