I don’t know if these Taco Scoops were more fun to make or more delicious to eat! I suppose these should be an appetizer but we made a meal out of them. My gosh did these taste amazing!
In a large frying pan over medium heat,
cook the diced onion and ground beef until
the onion is tender and the ground beef has
no more pink remaining, discard any grease.
Add taco seasoning to the water and mix.
Pour the water mixture over the ground
beef and simmer until the liquid is absorbed.
Add the salsa.
Add half of the cheese.
Stir until melted then remove
the pan from the heat.
Fill the scoops with the mixture.
Place on a large foil covered baking sheet.
Top with the rest of the cheese.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven
until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
Top with sour cream and serve.

As you might imagine, this sort of dish is pretty much a staple out here in Arizona. A quick lunch or a light supper is almost always at hand. But those little scoops are quite nice – even on their own. Not sure how they are different, but they are noticeably tastier.
They taste like tortilla chips but they have a deep pouch that holds a nice bite size of the ground beef mixture. These are all I use for my salsa too.
We have them here, too. They’re even on sale this week! ;->
Oh…lol I eat so many of these with salsa. My afternoon snack.
Thanks I take it you love taco’s too…lol
Addiction #1! Lol!
What a great treat for a party. Thanks for sharing this – I never (and I mean NEVER) would have thought of it.
Wow! So creative 🌈
Yummy! Looks good and easy to prepare.
Thanks and strange as it may seem, they were fun to make!
We would enjoy them as dinner, too. 🙂
They were great because they stay together so you can just pick them up and eat them. You don’t even need silverware…lol
This looks so delicious!
Thank you Diana they were!
You’re utmost welcome!
Yes, an awesome appetizer. I think I will take these to my brother’s family party in a few weeks. Thanks Diane.
You’re welcome Carla they were seriously so good!

Janet they were amazing! Thank you so much!
Such a fun idea, Diane!
They really were! Thank you Christy!
They look delicious and fun to eat! 💕
They really were and I can’t wait to make them again.
What a clever idea.
I don’t think we have taco scoops here. 🙁
You can use regular tortilla chips. The ground beef isn’t runny and should stay put if you don’t overfill them. You could even prepare them like nacho chips on a plate and spoon the ground beef mixture over the chips with a scoop of sour cream in the middle.
These look delicious.
Chris they were SO good! I will definitely have a meal of these again! Thanks!
Perfect for a social coming up!
Yes or family meal like I did…lol I couldn’t help it they were so good!
