Mini Taco Bowl Bites #SundaySupper

by lisa on April 30, 2017 · 10 comments

This week on Sunday Supper, the tastemakers are featuring easy Cinco de Mayo recipes. I am always excited to make any type of Mexican food. But to me, Cinco de Mayo should be a party so I decided to go with these little taco bowl bites.  They are perfect to serve at any party but especially Cinco de Mayo.

For the shells, I used dipper type tortilla chips. They are filled with taco meat and the toppings of your choice. I like to use ground turkey to save on calories and added fat. I’d much rather use my extra calories on a margarita.  They go perfectly with these Mexican bites. The ground turkey cooks up in no time. Taco sauce is added to give the Mexican flavor. I like to double the recipe and have an extra batch frozen in my freezer. You can use the cooked turkey for taco salads, enchiladas and burrito filling too.

These taco bowls really are the perfect bite. They are small enough to fit the whole bowl in your mouth so you get a taste of everything. If you wanted to change things up, you could make ground beef , ground chicken or beans and go vegetarian.

My family’s favorite toppings are shredded cheese, avocados, salsa and sour cream. I like to sprinkle everything with cilantro to make things taste extra fresh.

Thank you to Shelby from Grumpy’s Honeybunch for hosting this weeks event! Now take a look at all the other Easy Cinco de Mayo recipes below.  I hope everyone is celebrating with good food and drinks on the fifth of May!

I like your thinking, Lisa! Turkey is my preference every time, too =) Instead of margarita though I save my calories for fried ice cream. Anyway, love the idea of using tortilla dip chips for mini taco bowls.
