I’ve seen this recipe everywhere, but it’s literally so simple, I can write it here from memory!
The hardest part with this was transferring the cheese into the muffin pan to form the cup. I used a super thin, metal spatula (see picture below) and ruined the first 3 that I tried…but I’m happy to say that a piece of cheese didn’t get the best of me, and the remaining 5 cups turned out great! (It’s the little victories that add up to the big stuff, right?)
Ok so here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 package of sliced cheese. I used Colby Jack!
- 1 lb of ground beef
- Taco seasoning (packaged, or you can make your own!)
- Taco toppings – I’m boring, so I just used shredded cheddar cheese and salsa, but get creative with it! Sour cream, diced tomatoes, lettuce, onions…are all great options 😀
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Bake the cheese on a baking sheet on top of some parchment paper.
After about 5 minutes, or when the cheese is bubbling, carefully transfer the slices into a muffin pan to form the cup shape. Let these cool and set for about 10 minutes!
(Notice how they get progressively better…I’m proud to say I’m a fast learner! 😂)
Cook your ground beef and add the taco season. When the cheese cups are set, fill them with your meat and whatever other taco toppings you like!
SO.SIMPLE. Filling as well!
Will you try these? I’d love to hear what you would add to it if so!
