Baked Monster Eyes


These monster eyeballs are cute and tasty. They are also very easy to make and kids adore them. They are an easy variation on tacos and make an adorable main dish or appetizer for any party. For a less monstrous look, chop the olives and mix the taco sauce with the sour cream before filling. Top with the cheese and tortilla chips. This is a mild kid friendly seasoning mix. For a more adult mixture, feel free to add more seasoning and more taco sauce or hot pepper sauce.

1 pound lean ground beef
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
2 tablespoons ice water
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese (or cheddar, Monterey jack, or Colby)
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 cup sour cream
32 black olive halves
taco sauce

Mix together the ground beef, taco seasoning, and ice water. Press into 32 mini tart (or muffin) tins. Press firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the pans. Sprinkle the cheese and then the tortilla chips over the bottom and sides of the beef mixture, gently pressing into the beef if necessary to hold the mixture on the sides. Spoon the sour cream into each meat cup. Top with a half olive, cut side up. Fill the cavity in the olive with the taco sauce. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Serve hot.
