Taco Cups – The Wholesome Dish (Video)

Amanda over at The Wholesome Dish gives us a terrific and easy taco recipe, which I’ve combined with a homemade tortilla “cup”, to give you “Taco Cups”!!  You can learn more about Amanda here, and be sure to give her some love.  From what I have seen, she has recipes that are perfect for busy families, just like mine! 

You’ll love this combination, and it made an easy weeknight dinner that was also a change up from the regular boring taco routine.  I enjoyed the presentation of this dish, and hope you do as well.  Let’s jump right in!

Ingredients

For the Taco Meat

  • 1-pound lean ground beef (I prefer 90%, but you do you)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup water

For the Cups

olive oil for brushing

6 (5–6″/13–15-cm) flour tortillas

Toppings

Shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar Cheeses

Diced tomatoes

Shredded Lettuce

Taco Sauce

Instructions

For the Cups

Preheat oven to 375 ⁰F. Lightly brush the oil on both sides of the tortillas. Place each tortilla into a well of the Large Muffin Pan, and press into the sides to form a cup. Bake until brown and crisp, about 10–12 minutes.

For the Tacos

Cook beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking up the meat with the Mix ‘N Chop or a spoon.  Add in all of the spices, and cook for 6-8 minutes, until cooked through.

Reduce heat to medium, add tomato sauce and water, stir to incorporate.  Cook another 6-8 minutes until liquid is slightly reduced.

Dice tomatoes, shred lettuce, grate cheese.

Put it together:

Place about ¼- 1/3 cup of taco meat into each cup.  Add your favorite toppings, serve immediately. 

That’s it!  Super easy and a great presentation.  Please give me a shout out if you give this a try!
