Taco Cups

I've seen this kind of recipe going around Pinterest, but they all seem to use wonton shells (which is a fun idea) but I went with stuff I have around the house. So here's how I did Taco Cups.

Recipe - Taco Cups 


Ingredients
  • browned ground beef
  • 1 pkg taco spice (and required water)
  • wraps/soft taco shells
  • shredded cheese
  • your favourite taco toppings

Step 1
Mix your browned ground beef with the taco spice and simmer

Step 2
Cut out circles from your wraps to fit in a muffin tin so it goes up the sides (I was not accurate, I just cut one that I thought was good, tried it and then used it to cut out the rest, they don't have to be perfect circles either, gives the cups more character

Step 3
Place wrap circles on a paper towel and microwave for about 10 seconds, then immediately put them into the muffin tins, they are easier to work with when warm

Step 4
In the cups layer shredded cheese, then the taco meat and more cheese on top

Step 5
Bake for approx 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees

Step 6
Remove the cups from the muffin tin and top with your favourite toppings.  We did Mexican rice and sour cream on top.  Other ideas are lettuce, diced tomato, green onion, or salsa.


Family Thoughts



Everyone, even the kids, loved these!  I was a little worried they would fall apart in our hands but they held together really well!!  The shell didn't get too hard either so it wasn't hard to bite into which is great, because if it was I know that would turn the kids off.  A fun twist on taco night, something you can prep a head of time for a party too!
