One of my goals now that my semester is over, is to come up with new recipes and while they might not be from scratch, I want to make them kid approved because I don’t want my kids even trying to pull the boring food card, they will have yummy dinners all summer! And for this particular recipe I still used so many professional techniques but made it fast. One technique was using my nose because I didn’t set the timer for the biscuits. The other was using my knife skills to shred lettuce. See at the store today a bag of not so green shredded lettuce was almost 3 dollars. A fresh head of lettuce wasn’t much over a dollar. And once the garden comes in later I won’t be paying for any fresh veggies. I love it!

Ok for this recipe you will need to know one thing. I accidentally bought the Pillsbury Grand bisquits and I probably should have bought a smaller type but in the end it turned out perfect and it was actually my family’s favorite part!

Ingredients:

1 can Pillsbury Grand bisquits

1 lb. Ground Beef (or chicken, or steak etc)

2 Packets Taco Bell  Taco Seasoning, 1 regular and 1 chipotle

Fresh Veggies: Lettuce, tomato, green pepper, jalapeno etc

Sour cream if desired

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Use a non stick large muffin pan, and spread the bisquit circles out with your hands. Stuff them into the muffin pan making sure your dough goes towards the top. Put your pan in the oven and set your timer (or not..my bakery class taught me the most valuable lesson ever and that was to use my nose, I knew when they were done by the smell its awesome. I lurve bisquits.)

Start browning your hamburger, and when its time to add the season use half of the regular flavor and half of the chipotle flavor.

Meanwhile chop your veggies, this can be any veggies you want, the goal is to get the kids to build their own so its fun foreveryone. In my cups I did beef, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese, then green pepper. I added hot sauce to mine later I wasn’t about to give my kids tabasco yet lol.

When you first see your cups they will be poofy and that’s okay, take them out just before the timer goes and take a spoon to smoosh the middles. Carefully smooth out the center of the cups towards the sides to make room for the fixins. Let these cool about ten minutes they will harden a little enough to make them stable.

Fill em up! Have fun with it! You can use alllll kinds of toppings, like olives and chives, beans, rice even! The difference is the cups, they hold the meat juices in and they are so moist and soft and add something beyond the regular tortilla. My family LOVED them they were seriously gone fast. I can easily see mini versions of these for an appetizer!
