  • You can use readymade canned refried beans instead of pinto beans.

  • You can mix pinto beans and black beans too.

  • Add any veggies of your choice.

  • You can also top your tacos with lettuce, tomatoes or any of your favorite sauce.

  • You can use taco stands to place your taco shells when in oven.

  • Or you can place some crumpled foil to the bottom of your baking dish and then press the shells into the foil. It’ll give them support to keep them in place as they bake!
