Taco Cupcakes


1 lb ground beef, cooked and seasoned with taco seasoning
Cornbread mix, prepared according to package instructions for cupcakes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream, for topping
1 large tomato, diced
Chopped green onions, for garnish
Chopped cilantro, for garnish


 Prepare the Cornbread Base:
Preheat your oven to the temperature indicated on the cornbread mix package.
Prepare the cornbread mix according to the package instructions.
Pour the batter into a muffin tin to create cupcake shapes.
Bake until they’re firm but not fully cooked, about 10-12 minutes (adjust based on your cornbread mix instructions).
2️⃣ Add the Beef Filling:
While the cornbread cupcakes are baking, cook and season your ground beef with taco seasoning.
Once the cupcakes are nearly done, remove them from the oven.
Use a spoon to scoop out the center of each cupcake, creating space for the filling.
3️⃣ Spoon in the Savory Goodness:
Fill the hollowed-out centers of the cornbread cupcakes with the seasoned, cooked ground beef.
Be generous with the filling to ensure every bite is packed with flavor.
4️⃣ Top with Cheese and Bake:
Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese over the beef-filled cupcakes.
Return them to the oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese melts and starts to bubble.
5️⃣ Garnish and Serve:
Once out of the oven, top each taco cupcake with a dollop of sour cream, diced tomatoes, chopped green onions, and fresh cilantro.
For an extra indulgent twist, add a dollop of guacamole on top.
