Taco Cups with ground turkey, salsa, taco seasoning and cheese are easy to make and work as a fun appetizer or main meal with rice or a salad. You need just a few ingredients and 30 minutes to pull them together!
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- Add the ground turkey to a greased skillet and cook over medium heat until almost browned.
- Stir in the salsa and taco seasoning and continue cooking until the turkey is no longer pink and any liquid from the salsa has cooked off.
- Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and line each muffin cavity with a mini tortilla to form a cup.
- Divide the turkey mixture into each cup and top with cheese.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the edges of the tortillas have browned.
- Serve immediately with desired toppings.
- I used tortillas that were 4.5 inches in diameter and they fit perfectly in the muffin cups. If you can only find larger tortillas, just trim them down to a smaller size.
- Generously grease your muffin pan to ensure the taco cups lift out easily and don’t stick to the bottom.
- The recipe calls for just 1 tablespoon of reduced sodium taco seasoning. Feel free to use regular seasoning or homemade, and use more if you like extra taco flavour.
- You can use regular or reduced sodium salsa, and medium or mild both work. It just depends on how salty and spicy you want your taco cups.
- Make sure you use a chunky salsa. A watery salsa might make the bottom of your taco cups soggy.
- If your turkey mixture looks watery from the salsa, carefully drain off the excess liquid.
- Be careful not to over bake the taco cups as the bottoms may burn or brown too much.
