Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 2 tbsp butter salted, melted
  • 6 large eggs
  • 6 oz Mexican blend cheese shredded
  • 1 cup salsa

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté the beef until almost cooked through, breaking up the clumps with a wooden spoon. Add the taco seasoning and continue to sauté until completely cooked through. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F and brush a good non-stick mini muffin pan with the melted butter. (You can also use silicone or parchment mini muffin liners, if you prefer - if your pan is not very non-stick, this is your best option). This recipe makes about 32 mini muffins so you may need to work in batches if you don’t have more than one mini muffin pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the taco meat and 4 ounces of the shredded cheese. Whisk thoroughly to combine.
  • Fill the muffin cups to about ¾ full and sprinkle with the remaining shredded cheese. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until puffed and firm to the touch. Remove and let cool 10 minutes. Use a thin flexible spatula to run around the edge of the muffins to release.
  • Serve with your favourite taco toppings, such as salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
