Let's Make It
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the mini phyllo tart cups from their package and place them on a baking sheet.
While the oven preheats heat the 2 Tablespoons olive oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Brown the ground beef on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring to break up the meat. Drain fat. Add the 1/4 cup water, pepper, chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper and stir to combine. Continue to cook the beef until it is cooked through and on longer pink
Put the mini phyllo tart shells into the oven and bake for 8 minutes.
Remove the mini phyllo tart shells from the oven and sprinkle half the cheese into the shells. Return to the oven for 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
Top with the ground beef, remaining cheese, salsa, red onion and green onion.
These Mini Taco Cups are very customizable by adding your favorite toppings like BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream and chopped cilantro.
I like to use a mild salsa for this recipe because I feel like that is a safe bet with my guests. It you know your guests would be ok with some spice then feel free to use a spicy salsa or even a fruit salsa, like a Mango Peach version.
I used sharp cheddar cheese but feel free to use a different cheese like pepper jack or a Mexican blend.
