TACO CUPS RECIPE
Then, lightly mist your muffin pan (excuse how old mine is!!!) with olive oil spray and place the rounds down into the bottom of the indentions of the muffin pan. I then like to give my tortilla rounds another spritz from my olive oil mister before baking in the oven for about 10 minutes.
While the tortilla cups are baking, I brown my ground beef along with a little bit of my taco seasoning.
Once the beef is browned and the tortilla cups are crisped, I filled the tortilla cups with my taco meat and top each one with whatever toppings everyone prefers for their tacos.
I love to make these ahead of time for easy meal prep for super quick lunches and supper. Served with a side salad, this is a meal that my whole family truly loves.
MAKE-AHEAD TACO CUPS
To make them ahead, I like to prepare all of the ingredients and keep them separate. That way, I can reheat the taco meat quickly without feeling like the cups may suffer in the process. The taco cups keep well stored in a zip top bag or air tight container in the pantry.
Then, as I’m ready to serve them, I simple reheat the taco meat and assemble the taco cups and voila! Supper is ready!
- olive oil spray
- 4 (8-inch) tortillas
- 1 pound lean ground beef 92%
- 1 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning
Optional Toppings :
- shredded lettuce
- diced tomato
- diced red onion
- shredded cheese
- sour cream
Preheat oven to 375º F. Spray muffin pan with olive oil spray and set aside.
Cut tortillas into circles using at least a 3-inch round cutter. Place the circles into the muffin pan indentions, making sure to lightly press them into the bottom. Spritz the tops of the circles with olive oil spray and bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, brown the ground been in a skillet set over medium heat. Drain away any drippings and stir in the taco seasoning. Cook for another minute or so to incorporate the taco seasoning. Remove from the heat.
Fill the cups with taco meat and then top with your preferred toppings.
