Baked Chipotle Beef Tacos

I created this recipe with ingredients I already had on hand in the house. I always have a supply of chipotle peppers because we love things spicy around here! These tacos are a simple weeknight dinner but so delicious and a fun twist on a traditional taco!

Brown ground beef over medium high heat. Drain and add in the dry seasonings, chipotle peppers, and water. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Spoon into taco shells and sprinkle with cheese.
