Mini Taco Cups

It seems to be Taco Tuesday every night in my house! We’ve come to just love tacos way too much! One of our favorite ways to enjoy tacos lately are these Mini Taco Cups.

The kids love them for lunch or an easy dinner. Making your own taco cups is super easy too!

How to Make Mini Taco Cups

You will need: 

Tortillas 
Cheese 
Your favorite taco toppings 
Taco beef or chicken
Salsa 
Refried Beans

Step 1: Take a large biscuit cutter or even the bottom of a glass and cut out circles. I find that I can get 4 circles out of a burrito size tortilla.

Step 2: Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray and lay your cup in the tin.

Step 3: Bake the tortillas at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes until the tortillas are crispy.

Step 4: Fill your taco cups up with your beef or chicken and top with cheese. bake until cheese is melted. 

Step 5: Serve with your favorite taco toppings like lettuce, tomato, sour cream, etc.

Besides being perfect for lunch or an easy dinner, these Taco Cups are great for party snacks or appetizers. We’ve even enjoyed them on game day

You’ll love how the tortillas stay soft, but with a crunchy bite. I always make a big batch of taco meat, so this is a great way to use leftovers too!

These mini taco cups are the perfect way to enjoy tacos without all the guilt. I love that they are small so you can eat them and still adhere to a diet with portion control.
