Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 2 packages (1.9 ounces each) frozen miniature phyllo tart shells

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup cheese blend.
  2. Place tart shells in an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Fill with taco mixture.
  3. Bake 6 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese blend; bake until cheese is melted, 2-3 minutes longer.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled taco cups in a freezer container, separating layers with waxed paper. To use, reheat on a baking sheet in a preheated 350° oven until crisp and heated through.
