Who’s ready to watch some hoops? As many of you know, we’re big-time sports fans at our house.  My son and I are excited to fill out our brackets, and my husband even goes so far as to take time off from work to watch the first two days of the tournament. (He’s done this every year since before we were married!  It’s like his own personal sports stay-cation.)  As soon as the first games begin we always plan for lots of yummy snacks, like these Easy Baked Mini Tacos!  They’re simple to make, and great for enjoying with all of your fellow basketball fans!

Here are the simple steps to making these awesome Mini Tacos:

Step 1: Buy Your Ingredients

I stopped at my local Walmart to get all of my game-time essentials.  Here is a quick shopping list of everything that you need for this recipe:

  • Ro*Tel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies (near the canned tomatoes) Original Texas family recipe – made with a signature blend of vine-ripened tomatoes and zesty green chilies and a savory mixture of secret spices
  • Rosarita Traditional Refried Beans (in the Hispanic Food Section) Original-recipe Mexican-style refried beans – authentic and delicious
  • Tortillas (I used 4 burrito sized tortillas)
  • Ground beef
  • Taco seasoning
  • Rosarita Traditional Refried Beans
  • Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Cilantro (optional)

Step 2: Cut the tortillas and place in muffin tins

Lightly spray a 12-cup muffin or cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray.  I then used about 4 large burrito sized tortillas, and cut out small round circles with a 4″ round cookie cutter.  As you can see from the photo above, I then placed the round tortilla piece over the top of the muffin cup, and pressed the tortilla down with a juice glass.  This worked really well, and the tortillas stayed in place nicely.

Next, in a large skillet over medium high heat, brown the ground beef.  Drain off any excess fat, and add the taco seasoning and water.  Cook for another couple minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 3: Fill and Assemble the Mini Tacos

Start by placing a teaspoon of the Rosarita Original Refried Beans in the bottom of each tortilla, and spread evenly.  Then, add a spoonful of the seasoned ground beef. Then top each mini taco with a heaping tablespoon of cheese.

Bake the mini tacos for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly golden brown.

Step 4: Remove from pan and top with Ro*Tel Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies

Once the mini tacos come out of the oven, let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer the tacos to a plate or serving tray, and top with a spoonful of Ro*Tel Original Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies .  The Ro*Tel really adds some fantastic flavor to the tacos.  If you like, you can also add a drizzle of sour cream and cilantro.  My Loaded Guacamole is also a nice addition to these fantastic mini tacos!
