Taco Cups

  • 2 Cups Colby Jack Cheese Shredded
  • 1 lb Ground Beef 80% Lean
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1 Tbs Chili Powder
  • 1 Tbs Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • Sea Salt and Pepper To taste
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream To serve, optional

Avocado Salsa

  • 1 Medium Avocado Diced
  • 1 Small Tomato Seeded and Diced
  • 2 Tbs Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbs Fresh Cilantro Chopped
  • Sea Salt and Pepper To taste


  • Preheat oven to 200°F and line a large baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a Silpat® baking mat. Set aside.
  • Divide 1½ cups of the shredded cheese into 6 piles (approximately 1/4 cup each) on the prepared baking sheet and spread each pile into a thin circular layer. Place baking sheets in the pre-heated oven until the cheese is melted and slightly browned around the edges, around 5-6 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes, then remove the cheese and press into 3” ramekins or a muffin tin to form cups. Let cool for several minutes before gently removing the cheese cups from the form. Note: If using ramekins, the taco cups can remain in the container for extra support when serving.
  • In the meantime, add the ground beef to a large skillet over medium heat and cook until the beef is browned and cooked through, approximately 6-8 minutes. Carefully drain excess grease from skillet and return to cooktop.
  • Add water and season with chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Simmer for 2-3 minutes or until warmed through.
  • While the beef is cooking, combine the avocado, tomato, lime juice, and fresh cilantro in a medium bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and gently stir to combine.
  • To serve, fill the taco cheese cups with beef, avocado salsa, and remaining shredded cheese. Top with a dollop of sour cream, if using, and enjoy!
