  • Place tomatoes upside-down on a paper towel and let drain while you make the filling
  • Preheat oven to 350

  • Stir in taco seasoning and water. Stir until sauce forms and thickens. 
  • Place tomatoes right side up in a baking dish and season insides with salt and pepper.
  • Stuff tomatoes with taco meat
  • Take 2-3 small diced pieces of cheese and push them down into the taco meat. (the filling will shrink as you cook, so be sure to mound tops until they look like they’re overflowing)

  • Remove tomatoes from oven and serve with sides of sour cream, salsa and green onions
