|Posted on Jul 11, 2017 (0 comments)|
Tacos! We all love them, we all crave them. They even have their very own day of the week with a hashtag included - #Taco Tuesday. Besides pizza, hamburgers and hot dogs, tacos seem to also be another American staple food that are simply irresistible, especially when they have that added crunch to them.
If you have ever attended a party where tacos were served, chances are they were whipped up as the main dish, or least in part of the dinner festivities that are included. Now, what about adding a a little twist to dish? Instead of making tacos the meal, how about making them as an appetizer? We found a great recipe on the blog, Kevin & Amanda, and we couldn't not share these mouth-water, Crunchy Taco Cups that they created. Baked in a muffin pan (brilliant idea) these soft and melty, yet crunchy layered appetizer will leave you wondering why you ever made tacos any other way.
Here is the recipe below and click on the link to read more about these irresistible Crunchy Taco Cups!
