Here are a couple of wonderful side dishes that would pair perfectly with the tacos. Give Tomato & Grilled Bell Pepper Salad and/or the Arugula Salad with Tomato and Pignolia a try.

Bon Appetit!

Mini Taco Scoops Recipe

Mini Taco Scoops

For Game Day or Any Day…

Oh, boy! Is your mouth watering just looking at that picture? Mine is. These Mini Taco Scoops are so scrumptious. They burst with flavor, and are super easy to make too.

I previewed these Mini Taco Scoops in my Game Day Party post that featured the Snickers Mini Pudding Parfaits along with the Skittles Ice Cream Sandwiches. So, be sure to check that out, because these snacks make a perfect trio.

 

Mini Taco Scoops

The Ingredients Are Simple:

Tostitos Scoops, Hamburger, Taco Seasoning, Tostitos Chunky Salsa (I used the medium flavor), Sour Cream, Shredded Cheese, and Fresh Cilantro.

Here’s What You Do:

  • In a skillet, brown your Hamburger Meat making sure to stir it well, so the hamburger breaks down into smaller pieces
  • Drain off any excess juices
  • Add one packet of Taco Seasoning according to the packet instructions
  • Now it is time to layer your Mini Taco Scoop

  • Take a Tostitos Scoop and put a small amount of Taco-Flavored Hamburger in it
  • Then add a little Salsa
  • Add a tiny dollop of Sour Cream
  • Sprinkle some Shredded Cheese
  • Top with a Fresh Cilantro leaf

That’s it, you’re finished! These small bites are a perfect amuse bouche (Top Chef would be proud – LOL). The flavors are wonderful, and the fresh cilantro really makes them pop…YUM!

You can make the Mini Taco Scoops and place them on a platter, or you can set up a build-your-own Mini Taco Scoops Bar. I like to do both. I have a platter of them on the table and set up the bar around them. That way, guests know what they are supposed to look like when they go to make their own.

These tasty snacks go quickly, so be sure to have plenty of fixings!
