Taco Ramekins

“I love to cook and eat all types of food,” writes Barbara Willmitch from Younstown, Ohio. “But this tasty dish is a real hit with my daughter and her friends. It has a mildly Mexican-style flavor that both young and old can enjoy.”

    Sounds good! Can corn flour substitute for biscuit/baking mix?

    I loved this recipe. Instead of using the baking mix and water though, I used Grand's Butter recipe biscuits for the dough in each ramekin (1 per ramekin). And I used red pepper instead of green as that's all I had. This was quick and easy and very tasty. My husband loved it too! This recipe is a keeper for our house. Quick, economical and tasty!

    Easy recipe, filling, and fairly cheap! I doubled the recipe for my husband and I so we'd have leftovers for lunch. I used sweet red pepper instead of green just because that's what I already had. I think next time I will add just a tad more spice to the meat (but it's still good as-is). I'll also try what the other reviewer suggested of putting lettuce, black olives and salsa on top. I do feel like the ratio was just a tad off, I had wanted more of the tomato and sour cream/mayo mixture. I might just increase how much I make next time, as a matter of preference. We really liked this recipe and will use it again!

    I don't like green pepper, so I substituted diced onion instead. I served it with traditional taco toppers: shredded lettuce, grated cheese, sliced black olives and salsa. With those additions, it's a 5-star recipe!

    I really enjoy this one. I cook for myself, so I will make the two, bake one and put one in the refrigerator for the next day (or whenever). It's very good.
