These easy to make and easy to eat Taco Cups are a great appetizer for any occasion, and easy enough for a weeknight dinner. With a handful of ingredients, and about 10 minutes, you can have these mini tacos ready to serve!
If your family loves tacos – and who doesn’t – they will love these Taco Cups! They are bite sized and perfect for an appetizer, or add multiple appetizers for a fun dinner.
The Taco Cups are full of flavor, easy to eat, and really satisfying! They are filling enough to be dinner – a dinner of all appetizers is my favorite kind! You can eat these plain or dunk them in salsa or sour cream.
To keep it super easy, these Mini Taco Cups are made with Scoops chips, another fun idea are Wonton Tacos made with wonton wraps.
How to make Mini Tacos
- Begin by making your favorite taco meat. Here is what we like – brown 1 pound of ground beef or turkey and drain it, then add salsa and taco seasoning
- Lay out the mini taco shells onto a cookie sheet or in a muffin tin – we like to use Scoops chips, you can also cut a tortilla shell into a round circle, or use wontons
- Next, spread refried beans into the chips
- Top with the meat and sprinkle with cheese
10 minutes in the oven and your Taco Cups are ready! I love that these are bite sized – and you don’t even really need a plate!
Serve the Taco Cups with sour cream, salsa, green onions and any of your favorite Mexican toppings like these easy Pickled Jalapenos.
