I’m cooking up my favorite quick and easy Baked Fajita Tacos.
What do I love more than tacos?
I love kitchen gadgets and cooking with OXO as much as I love tacos!
Y’all know how excited I get when it’s time to cook with OXO and today is even more exciting.
The wonderful people at OXO sent my their 14-Piece Glass Bake, Serve & Store Glass Bakeware and Glass Food Storage Set for recipe development.
Both Glass Bakeware and SNAP Glass Food Storage are made of thermal shock resistant borosilicate glass, which means the Bakeware can go from freezer to oven or microwave without cracking – both lines can withstand up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit of temperature change.
Glass Bakeware has raised, slosh-proof lid for easy transportation and storage without squishing your baked goods.
It’s also convenient, easy-to-read size markings on the container and wide, comfortable handles that work with oven mitts.
Their also stackable and nestable with a microwave safe (lid is too, just undo the tabs first!)
Don’t forget they also has a Leak-proof seal!
First, I sauteed poblano and bell peppers with onion and a little garlic.
You can use whichever color bell peppers you like but I love to mix them.
Reserve half the pepper onion mixture.
After you fill up your shells top with lots of Mexican cheese.
You can never have too much cheese on tacos!
If you prefer you can save the peppers to top after baking.
My family prefers the peppers to be melted with the cheese.
I bake them at 375 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
You could use soft taco shells but if you’re going for the crunch factor, hard shells is where it’s at!
You know you can never go wrong with avocado.
