Baked Mini Shredded Beef & Cheese Tacos

Baked Mini Shredded Beef & Cheese Tacos

Oh how I love these little mini shredded beef and cheese tacos. I used to buy boxes of them from Trader Joe’s because they are a quick and easy snack to throw in the oven when you don’t feel like cooking. We had friends over for dinner this weekend and I made shredded beef soft tacos and we had a bit of leftover meat and cheese. I had some mini street taco corn tortillas in the fridge and decided to re-create Trader Joe’s mini beef tacos. They were so simple to make, took only 15 minutes to bake, and made my whole family happy. We sat around the kitchen counter eating these crispy mini beef tacos with leftover guacamole and smoky chipotle salsa. I guess I won’t be buying them from the store anymore. These little mini tacos are great for an appetizer, snack, super bowl food, or for your Cinco de Mayo party.
