Thursday on the way home from work, I was trying to think of something different to make for dinner (I have a long drive home, lots of thinking time).
And what pops into my head? Taco Tarts!
Don’t those look cute? Almost (yes almost) too cute to eat. But…that defeats the purpose, plus we’d still be hungry!
1 lb ground beef – cooked and drained.
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup taco seasoning
Add water and seasoning to meat and bring to boil. Let simmer til liquid is almost gone.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Pillsbury has a can of dough that is like crescent dough but is a sheet instead of triangles. Cut into squares and press into muffin pan cups. Fill 1/2 way with taco meat. Top with desired items like onions, peppers, etc.
Bake for 10 min at 375. Remove from oven and add shredded cheese to each cup. Bake for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Remove from muffin pan to stop them from sitting and burning while doing next step.
Add your desired cold ingredients such as more shredded cheese and lettuce:
Or tomatoes and more peppers:
Or just add a little of everything you love on tacos!
