Taco Cuppies

I tested a new recipe on my guys last night and it was a solid home-run with them. They ate these up! I call them Taco Cuppies because they are essentially a taco in a biscuit cup and I just kind of like the word cuppies.



1 lb hamburger meat, browned with chopped onions
1 can Rotel
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne chili powder (optional)
salt and pepper
2 cans of biscuits (you can use reduced fat but don’t do the butter flavored ones- ick!)
chopped tomato
shredded cheese (your favorite kind! )
sour cream
shredded lettuce


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown hamburger meat with chopped onion, salt and pepper. If I have bell pepper or jalapenos, I’ll throw some in the pot too. Drain grease off the cooked meat. Add seasonings and Rotel. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Spray muffin pan with cooking spray. Flatten biscuits by hand to make them thin – like pancakes. Press the biscuits into the muffin pan. Sprinkle a small amount of cheese into the cups. Spoon the meat mixture into the biscuit cups and bake 10 minutes or until cups are lightly browned. Remove from oven and top with your favorite taco toppings.
