Starry Night Taco Cups Recipe

Publisher Photo
These Mexican-style snacks will surely add sparkle to a slumber party spread! To make them, our home economists lined muffin cups with tortilla shells, then filled each with a not-too-spicy beef mixture kids can garnish with cheese, lettuce and other toppings. For tasty dippers besides, you could serve the cutout stars with salsa.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 2, 2011

"These taco cups were so easy! And they were a big hit with my 2 kids. I didn't use the taco mix the recipe calls for. Instead I had leftover chicken taco filling from the Taste of Home recipe for "Lime Chicken Tacos". I used this instead and they came out amazing! I'll be making these again."
