Pace® as a brand ALWAYS provides genuine southwest flavor and I love using it in my cooking. Of course it tastes great for dipping, but it really is good on anything but ice cream.

It has variety of textures and heat levels ~ it kicks the flavor up to 11. I got the 24 oz. Pace® Salsa Verde and 24 oz. Pace® Chunky Salsa Medium at Walmart.

I just love buying versatile products like this. After making these taco cups, I also enjoyed the salsa with some chips.

To make the taco cups I used ground turkey that I seasoned with homemade taco seasoning. If you are not a huge fan of turkey, you can use ground chicken instead.

I cooked the turkey with the seasoning on the stove top until no longer pink.

I used a round cookie cutter to cut out 3 1/2-inch rounds from flour tortillas, which I then placed  in a greased muffin tin. Then I topped with about 1 tbsp ground turkey and 1 tbsp grated cheese and baked in the oven for 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are crispy.

Then let the cups cool a little, carefully remove from the tin and top with chopped tomatoes (you can skip these, if you decide to use Pace® Picante Sauce), avocado, sour cream and Pace® Salsa Verde.

These mini muffin tin taco cups are loaded with southwest flavors and very tasty.

  1. Taco cups are one of my favorite bite-sized foods to make! This looks SO good, Mira! I love that you used tortilla shells for the base and loaded these with lots of topping. Sounds delicious with that salsa on top, too! So perfect for the season!
