Mini Taco Cups

We are a snack lovin’ family! In fact, one of the meals that our boys love the most is when we have Appetizers. These Mini Taco Cups are the perfect appetizer, snack, treat or even a side dish for your Mexican meal.

With just a few ingredients, these mini version of everyone’s favorite taco are a snap to put together.

Begin with a taco chip, we like Tostitos Scoops Chips for these, filled with a bit of Refried Beans, Taco Meat and topped with cheese. Into the oven they go for only 10 minutes to heat them through and melt the cheese.
