Taco Cups

A while back I pinned a recipe for Mini Taco Quiches.
That was my inspiration behind these Taco Cups. Some items I changed due to preference, some according to what I had on hand. I do not have a four inch round anything to cut the tortillas into nice circles with, so the first two tortilla halves I attempted to freehand them into a circular shape. They didn't seem quite large enough so with the remaining four halves I simply shaped them into the muffin cups without cutting. These made nicer cups in my opinion, but if you have a four inch round cookie cutter, that would probably be the best route.

3 8-inch flour tortillas, cut in half
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup hot salsa
1/2 cup Crock Pot Pinto Beans
2 Tbsp water
2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and red pepper to taste
2 Tbsp liquid egg, about half of a large egg
cream cheese, optional
sliced American cheese, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray six muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
Shape each tortilla half (or circle) into a cup and place in muffin cup. Set aside. Brown ground beef and onion until ground beef is completely cooked. Remove from heat. Drain off grease if necessary. Stir in salsa, beans, water, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, red pepper and egg.
Fill each tortilla cup with 1/4 cup meat mixture. Top with a small slice of American cheese and a dollop of cream cheese. Bake for 25 minutes.
Serve and enjoy.
