Course Appetizer
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 6 Large tortillas (I used whole wheat)
  • 1 Package plant-based ground beef
  • 1 tbsp Homemade taco seasoning
  • 1 cup Plant-based cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup Salsa
  • Green onions and other toppings (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut out 24 circles from your tortillas that are about 3.5" in diameter. You should get four circles out of each large tortilla.

  2. Press the tortilla circles into the cups of a mini muffin tin, allow the sides to fold in on themselves to fit, creating ruffles around the edges of your tortilla cups.

  3. In a medium sauce pan, break up your plant-based ground beef mixture and cook on medium heat for about five minutes, sprinkling on your taco seasoning about halfway through the cooking time.

  4. Spoon about a tablespoon of "meat" into each taco cup, then top each with a teaspoon of salsa and a generous pinch of plant-based cheese.

  5. Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for about two minutes, then add any extra toppings you'd like!
