Taco Cups with Ingredients

Quick and Easy Dinner Idea – Mini Taco Cups

Share this:

This recipe is super easy and tasty! We made these and they were gone instantly–even toddler approved. I know that some people make them with wonton wrappers, but I find the Phyllo dough to have a softer, more buttery taste that I really like with the taco flavoring. I also REALLY don’t love super crunchy stuff so these are a perfect fit for me.

These Taco Cups make great appetizers, or we used them for a full meal at our house. If you are efficient, start to finish is closer to 20/25 minutes just depending on how long your hamburger takes to brown.

  • Take phyllo dough sheets, fold in half until slightly larger than the muffin tin/cup size. Push dough sheet into cup and folder over excess dough in corners creating a dough "cup." Repeat for the rest of the muffin tin.
    Bake the phyllo cups until light golden brown, roughly 5 minutes.

  • Once hamburger and dough cups are done, add a large spoonful and ground taco meat to each cup and top with cheese. Bake additional 3-5 minutes so all the cheese is melted.

Notes

This recipe is great for meals, appetizers, or side dishes. We also have an oversized muffin tin that that size works really great for adults, with a regular muffin tin size working great for kids. If serving as a meal, plan for 4-5 cups per full-grown adult and 2-3 per kiddo (unless they are super hungry). The dough is surprisingly filling!
