Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Place one tortilla into each muffin tin. Pressing the tortilla down on the bottom and around the sides. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the tortillas are lightly browned around the edges. Remove and set aside.
  • While the cups are baking, heat a large skillet to a medium-high heat and add oil. Add the onion and bell pepper. Cook until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ground beef. Crumble the meat as it cooks, about 5-8 minutes. Drain grease and add back to skillet. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the cooked ground beef. Add water and bring to a low boil. Lower heat and cook 5-10 minutes, or until water is absorbed and meat is seasoned well.
  • Scoop a spoonful of meat mixture into each tortilla cup. Add about a tablespoon of beans and sprinkle with cheese. Add tomatoes, onions, lettuce, salsa and a dallop of sour cream.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
