Tex-Mex Taco Cups

“Nowadays, hoy en día, with our world full of war and violence and lack of love, a world full of greed, a world of domination, grasping power, venal stupidity, real evil, don’t get me started, it’s good to know that a conversation about tacos will always engender a sense of comfort and happiness. If only we could sit down at a big round world table and eat tacos in a spirit of love we might begin to work on world peace!” -Denise Chavez

 I have been thinking about opening my own catering business for some time now. I have been trying to think of recipes that are a little more party friendly.  My fabulous roommate had made a wicked batch of salsa the night before and so I have been craving Tex-Mex. These scrumptious little bites are great for a party with lots of people because they can be made in batches. They hold together well so you can eat and walk with them and they are filling so your guests won't leave hungry... Enjoy! 

1/2 lb. Ground beef or ground turkey
1 small onion ( diced ) 
2 tbsp. Garlic ( minced )
 2 tbsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Oregano 
1 tbsp. lime pepper
1 tsp. Salt 
1/4 cup salsa 
2 cups bisquick mix 
1 cup plus 1 tbsp. milk 
1 cup cheese ( Shredded )
2 tbsp.  Cilantro 

In a large skillet add ground meat, onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, lime pepper, and salt. Saute until meat is cooked and onions are tender. remove from heat and add in salsa. 

In a mixing bowl add bisquick, 1 cup of milk, and cilantro. ( you will notice in the pictures I forgot the cilantro.. whoops! ) 

 spoon mixture into well greased muffin tin filling 1/3 of the cups. place 2 tbsp. meat mixture on top of batter then sprinkle with 1 tbsp. of cheese. 

Once this is done, add 1 tbsp. of milk to remaining dough and mix until it is the consistency of pancake batter. Spoon 1 tbsp. of batter on top of the muffin tins. 

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
