Gluten Free Taco Bites

Yesterday’s post inspired me.

Eating the same old thing week after week may be easy….but yeah, it’s not always exciting.

So I’m scrapping my original plans for a big salad tonight, and I’m bringing out an oldie but a goodie out of the recipe box.

Gluten Free TACO CUPS!!

I absolutely love taco cups, and they actually aren’t that hard to make. I just sort of forgot about them!

The taco cups are easy to make thanks to Rudi’s GF tortillas.

You start by cutting circles out of the tortillas:

and then place them in a cupcake tin, letting the corners pucker up.

Spritz lightly with cooking spray and then bake at 400 degrees for 5-10 minutes, or until the tortilla browns a bit on the edges:

Then fill with whatever you love! I like seasoned ground chicken, homemade guacamole, a tiny bit of monterey jack cheese, and a tomato.

So good! Since it’s made from a tortilla (and it isn’t just a crispy corn chip) it doesn’t fall apart in your mouth. The cup is crispy on the edges but still pliable.

I was pleasantly surprised the first time I made these because the cup didn’t crumble when I took a bite!

Happy Wednesday!
