How fun are these little Taco Cups made in a muffin tin?? Kevin LOVED them, and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to make tacos another way again! They’re layers of crunchy taco shell, seasoned beef, spicy tomatoes, and gooey cheese all in one perfect bite.

They were such a huge hit because, you see, I am a soft taco kind girl. But Kevin prefers crunchy tacos. So whenever we had taco night, we always had to make two different kinds. BUT. These tasty little taco cups are the best of both worlds. The outside is satisfying crisp and crunchy. But the inside is soft and melty! Just how I like it. We both loved them!
