Love to Cook Thursdays - Taco Cups by Terri

This week I decided to share a fairly new recipe with you - Taco Cups. This delicious recipe is quickly becoming a family favorite. I found it in Kraft Food & Family the free quarterly magazine from The first time I made this for one of my crops. It was a big hit with my scrapbookers!

Taco Cups
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 chopped onion
1 tsp. Lime Pepper
1 pkg. reduced sodium Taco Seasoning Mix
1 can Campbell's Tomato Bisque Soup
2 cans 8 count refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits (not Grands)
1 cup grated colby jack cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Coarsely chop onions.
Brown ground beef and onion. Season with Lime Pepper.
Add taco mix and tomato soup.
Press biscuits onto bottoms and up sides of 16 muffin cups.
Fill with meat mixture.
Sprinkle cheese on top of meat.
Bake 15-20 minutes. Serve with Salsa & sour cream.

Note: Store brand biscuits work great. Last time I used "Grands" biscuits. Jerry & I both felt that there was too much bread and not enough meat mixture using the "Grands". This time I used reduced fat crescent rolls. This formed a very thin pastry crust which worked well. Jerry especially liked these as "leftovers" for lunch at work. Enjoy!

Walk with God!

Looks yummy and kid-friendly, Terri! If you use Grands for the crust you could use the flaky ones and split them into halves or thirds and cut back on the thickness.
