MINI TACO BOWLS (Adapted from The Today Show)

1 lb ground beef
2 TBSP taco seasoning
1 diced tomato
1 jalapeño, chopped
12 corn tortillas
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
cilantro (optional)

Brown ground beef and drain.

Add jalapeños to beef. Add 1/4 cup water and taco seasoning and cook over medium heat until water is absorbed.

Reduce heat to low.

Heat each corn tortilla in microwave for 30 seconds to soften. Using a 3 inch cutter (like a jar lid) cut 2 circles from each tortilla.

Press each cicle into the cup of a mini muffin pan, folding sides as needed. Place in 350 degree F oven for about 12 minutes (until tortilla is crispy). Place each shell on cooling rack and fill with taco meat.

Top with cheese and diced tomato and a leaf of cilantro (optional).
