Taco Cups

This is a great throw together snack that is Super Bowl Party worthy and easy for the kids to assemble.

I borrowed a friend's daughter, Lexi, to help me out since I am daughter-less and those sons of mine don't want to help much in the kitchen. (Unless it requires making food disappear!)

You will need:

1 lg. bag taco cups (dippers)
1 lb. ground beef
Onion flakes (1 T.)-optional*
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
Shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
Sour cream
Sliced black olives
*Your favorite Mexican toppings

Brown beef with onion flakes and drain.
Add taco seasoning and add water and cook (according to package directions)
Place taco cups on a large baking sheet.

Place A spoonful of beef mixture in each cup.

Top with cheese. Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven until cheese melts.
Remove from oven and add your favorite Mexican toppings.

Serve warm.


  1. They look delish, perfect for just popping into your mouth! Nice helper you got there :)

  2. Those little taco cups are cute! Great idea for the superbowl.

  3. Delicious idea on how using these taco scoop shells; I saw them at the market and didn' know what to do with them, so this idea is terrific. Yum yum yum!! Good to see the kiddo involved.

  4. This is a wonderful idea for these little scoops- I love them anyway, but this is such a great little finger food! Thanks!

  5. These look absolutely delicious! What a great idea!

  6. yep! just in time for the superbowl! (Hey... I'm a fan on facebook now! ;-)

  7. I love taco cups! I might make these tomorrow for the big game or big commercials - which ever way you view it!
