This is the most wonderful time of the year! It's also the busiest time of the year!
I know you are busy. I'm busy. My kids and my husband are busy and I know yours are too. There are school programs and church programs, Christmas parties and other seasonal activities to attend.
Stopping at the drive-through is a real temptation.
But too much of that is not healthy, and it's hard on the wallet!
This meal tastes just like your favorite fast-food taco place. But it's homemade, so you know what's in it, and it's fresh! These tacos are fast and easy. And what makes them "fast-food" fantastic is the meat and the taco shells.
There's a little trick to cooking the meat so that it's really fine ...you put an 8 oz can of tomato sauce in with the 1 lb of raw hamburger before it starts to cook! I know, sounds weird.

It works really well with either flour or corn. My family is partial to flour tortilla shells so that's what I use for them; I like corn, so I use a couple of those for me :)
Heat oven to 350. Lightly spray both sides of tortillas with cooking spray. When oven is heated, use tongs and position tortillas over rack in oven as shown. (Make sure that you have first separated the two oven racks so that you have room to work without getting burnt).

Oh, and even though they hold quite a bit...
You might still need a fork :)
