Taco Cups

I am helping my sister whose starting a summer school tutoring program at her house by making some freezable summer lunches. I know the #1 most requested dinner at my night is hands down 

ALWAYS taco night!

 In light of that I came up with this recipe! I will be adding more Freezable Kid Approved Lunches as I have time, so CHECK BACK OFTEN!!

I created this recipe by using left overs from Taco Night, this freezes well or can be a "remix" for next days supper. My Kids LOVE having their own mini pies! Look below for ideas & links for remixing your own left overs!
Mine looks like these from

Taco Cups
  • 2 Tubes of Basic Refrigerated biscuits {16 Biscuits}
  • 1/2 Lb of Taco Seasoned Ground Beef
  • Taco Sauce
  • 4 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 oz Salasa
  • 8 Oz Refried Beans
  • Fresh Cilantro )optional
  • Muffin pan

  1. Use last nights taco meat or browned ground beef with taco seasoning, drain and set aside.
  2. Spray muffin pan with non-stick spray and press biscuits into muffin pan 
  3. Open biscuit dough and press one biscuit into each muffin tin, making sure to leave space for the filling.
  4. Fill each biscuit with 1/4 Cup beef mixture. 
  5. Top with 1 tablespoon each Salsa, Re-fried Beans, Taco Sauce, then shredded cheese. 
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, until biscuits are cooked through and cheese is melted.
  7. If serving immediately sprinkle each cup with chopped fresh Cilantro

 Other Ideas for Mini Cups:
  • Keep this idea in mind when you have just any left overs such as: 
  • Beef Stew {Beef Pot Pie!}, 
  • Chicken & Noodles {chicken pot pie},
  • Mini Cheese Burger and Tators, 
  • Mini Pizza Cups, 
  • Barb-B-Q Beef, Chicken, or Pork, topped w/shredded cheese
  • Mini Quiches,
  • Mini Pies {Any Pie Filling}
  • Mini Spaghetti Pies
  • Left over Stir Fry
  • Mini Monkey Bread
  • Left over Chicken Alfredo
  • Mini Cream Pies {Bake as directed without filling poking holes in bottom of biscuit muffins, then fill with cream pie filling and top with whipped cream, refrigderate, WON'T FREEZE WELL< eat within 3 days}
