Not much can go wrong when you throw meat and cheese in a bread, then into an oven where it all melts together. So would be the case with these easy taco cups. I love cooking in the kitchen with my mom; she taught me how to cook and bake and she taught me to love it. We made this simple dinner together one evening.
It starts at the pop of a Grands biscuit can. I still think the way those cans pop open and burst biscuit dough out is pretty cool. Maybe that’s the little girl in me.. anyway, smoosh a biscuit into each cup of a muffin pan.. wait, play with food.. I feel that little girl in me again!
Bake the biscuits about halfway done while you get the taco meat happy. Brown some ground beef and toss in a pack of taco seasoning. Or, throw your own spices in so it’s YOUR taco meat!
Don’t forget about your biscuits! They’ll only need about ten minutes or so, probably. They won’t have holes anymore, though. But, they’ll still be soft and doughy, so create a hole with a spoon and you’re back in business. That part is kinda fun too! If you have children, get them to help smoosh and make holes!
Mess is just part of the process here. It’s a kitchen, people! Fill each cup as generously as you can with your yummy taco meat. At this point, we put them back in the oven to finish cooking, probably another ten minutes or thereabouts. Top just as generously with cheese afterwards and give it another minute in the oven just to melt and get happy together.
Top that goodness with more goodness like fresh avocados and lettuce. I like to mix sour cream and salsa and pour that on top of it all. Yum, simple, easy!
