  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and next 6 ingredients (through black pepper); sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add beef; cook 3 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Remove beef mixture from pan using a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Return beef mixture to pan; stir in tomato sauce. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Spread 2 tablespoons beans evenly over 1 side of each flour tortilla; sprinkle each with about 2 tablespoons cheese. Place tortillas on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Carefully wrap 1 tortilla around 1 hard taco shell, pressing gently until cheese sticks to shell. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas and shells. Spoon about 1/4 cup beef mixture into each shell; top each with 2 tablespoons lettuce, 2 tablespoons tomato, and 1 tablespoon sour cream.
