Mini-Taco Cups

This is the singular easiest recipe in the world, THERE’S ONLY three INGREDIENTS! Kids love it, it’s a great appetizer, and it’s ridiculously cheap. Could it get better.. . NO!!!

My sister told me about this recipe, in fact she asked me to make it for her kids, who absolutely love it.  Below are 2 recipes, though you could add a thousand things to this.  The top recipe is the one that costs less than $10 to feed a bunch of snack happy folks!  The bottom one has a couple additions that lean more towards a traditional taco.  Let’s begin the easiness!!!!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Large bag of Tostito’s Scoops Tortilla Chips (Scoops is very important)
  • 1 or 2 Cans of Refried Beans
  • 1 Bag of Shredded 4 Cheese mix or Mexican 4 Cheese

RECIPE:

  • Preheat Broiler
  • Lay out full Scoops on a baking tray(No broken ones!)
  • Pour Re-fried beans into a bowl and microwave for 1 minute
  • Stir beans
  • Microwave for another 45 seconds
  • Put 1 spoonful of Re-fried Beans into each empty Scoop
  • Top with Shredded Cheese
  • Put in oven on Broil for about 2 minutes or until the cheese is ooey-gooey

ENJOY!

SECONDARY RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Large bag of Tostito’s Scoops Tortilla Chips (Scoops is very important)
  • 1 or 2 Cans of Re-fried Beans
  • 1 Bag of Shredded 4 Cheese Mix or Mexican 4 Cheese
  • 1 Lb Lean Ground Beef
  • Salt/Pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cumin
  • 1 Clove of Garlic, Minced
  • 1/2 Onion Diced

RECIPE

  • Hit the meat with about 1 Tbsp each Salt & Pepper
  • In a medium size skillet, heat to medium and put the meat in, try to coat the whole bottom of the pan with meat
  • Add the onion and garlic on top of the meat
  • Cook for 4 minutes, then break up the meat with a wooden spoon
  • Add the Cumin and Paprika, then stir again
  • When meat is browned, drain the meat
  • Preheat Broiler
  • Lay out a layer of whole Scoops
  • Heat up your beans like above
  • Put a 1/2 spoonful of meat in the bottom of the cup
  • Put in a 1/2 spoonful of beans on top of the meat
  • Top with a sprinkle of cheese
  • Broil for about 2 minutes until the cheese is ooey-gooey

These are great by themselves, or topped with a dollop of sour cream, salsa, and a pinch of fresh cilantro.  Now tell me that wasn’t easy?  I did this in less than 10 minutes and kept 4 little girls full until dinner time!  It’s like magic, except it really is magic!  They’ll end up looking like this terrible picture taken on a camera phone from 1998, except better, before they’re put in the oven!

Wow. . . that’s a great picture. . . I know, but either way, they’re amazing! Let me know what you think!
