Taco Cupcakes

Here's a fun and yummy treat your kids (and husband!) are sure to love!

Taco Cupcakes
1 lb lean ground beef
1 c chopped onion
1 c frozen corn kernels
1 (12 oz) can refrigerated biscuit dough
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 package taco seasoning

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the cups of a muffin pan.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook beef and onion until brown. Drain excess fat. Stir in taco seasoning, cheese, and corn. Remove from heat.

Flatten each biscuit and press into cups of prepared muffin pan. Make sure the dough comes to the top of the pan. Spoon a portion of the meat mixture into each dough cup.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.

I deviate from the recipe a bit by using a can of Grands Buttermilk Biscuits. I think it's 16 ounces. I cut the biscuits in half and then flatten them. It makes 16 taco cupcakes.

You can also try the cups made with BBQ sauce instead of taco seasoning, or tuna and cheese, or spaghetti sauce and mozzarella.

Sounds yummy! I am sure that the kids will love helping create these "cupcakes". Might even get them to eat more than the usual frosting only that they eat with regular cupcakes!
