Taco Cups


Original 2011 photo
I love to get a little help from the store when I am in a rush to make dinner. So when Pillsbury Grands Biscuits were on sale I stocked up.  Now I had to come up with different and exciting ways to use them.   Well, it wasn't hard.  I created these Taco Cups and they were really fantastic. My kids loved how fun they were to eat and they were a lot less messy than eating tacos the traditional way.

1lb lean ground meat (beef, chicken, pork or turkey)
2 jalapenos seeded and chopped
1 onion chopped
2-3 Tbs store bought Taco seasoning (I used McCormick brand)
1-2 tsp of ground cumin
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of red chili flakes (or to taste)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 (15oz) can diced tomatoes
1 tube of 8 grands biscuits
1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese

Start by browning meat with a little salt and pepper. Then add onions and jalapeno and finish browning meat.  Next add seasoning: taco seasoning, cumin, garlic powder, red chili flakes. Saute for 1-2 minutes.

Then add one can of diced tomatoes.  Saute for another 3-5 minutes.  Taste for seasoning.

Take biscuits and separate in the middle to form two flatter biscuits.  The biscuits are flaky and layered so this is easily done by simply pulling them apart. stretch a grands biscuit and gently mold it inside each muffin hole.  Now put some taco filling inside each cup and top with shredded cheese.  I used a Mexican blend of cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until biscuits are fully baked and the cheese is melted.  Should make 16 cups.
