I mentioned before that everyone in our family likes their tacos differently. The husband prefers crunchy tacos (I always make homemade shells). I prefer soft flour tortillas. And The Goose always wants taco cups.
So, what exactly are taco cups?
Taco cups are bite size tacos, served on a tortilla scoop (you can find these in the chip aisle, next to the traditional tortilla chips). Taco cups are great for kids because they are the perfect size for little hands. Plus, they’re fun. Who doesn’t love miniature versions of our traditional foods?
Toppings (as desired)
Sliced Black Olives
Place unbroken tortilla scoops on a plate. (I use the broken chips to make taco salad for the husband’s lunch).
Using a spoon (the same kind you use to eat cereal), add a small spoonful of taco meat to each tortilla chip.
Top the meat with cheese, and any additional toppings, just like you would a regular taco. The Goose’s favorite toppings are sour cream and tomatoes.
Serve immediately. (If the chips sit around for too long they’ll start to get soggy).
Taco Cups are really easy to make, and are great for dinner or as an appetizer (I’ve served them on Christmas Eve, Birthday parties and at my friend’s Apple Cider Party). They are always gone within minutes.
