  • Ground Sirloin- Any ground beef will work.
  • Onion– I prefer to use yellow or white onions.
  • Taco seasoning – You can use a premade package or make your own. Find the best homemade taco seasoning here.
  • Garlic salt- This adds a great flavor.
  • Sugar- The sugar adds a touch of sweetness.
  • Salsa- Salsa goes amazing with tacos.
  • Ranch Style beans- You can also use regular beans if you can not find these.
  • Colby Jack cheese- Use shredded cheese or shred your own.
  • Cherry tomatoes- Cherry tomatoes are best but grape tomatoes will work too.
  • Limes – The limes will be washed and sliced.
  • Green onions – These are used for topping the tacos.
  • Soft flour Tortillas- Flour tortillas are best but corn can be used.

How to Make Mini Tacos

Should I Use Corn or Flour Tortillas?

I like to use flour tortillas with these tacos but you can also corn tortillas. The flour tortillas are easier to use because they are more pliable.

  1. Thinking of making these for a very large crowd, and would like to know if they hold well together when placed in a pan loosely or does the meat tend to fall out?

  2. 5 stars
    These look so yummy! I’m thinking of making the filling, heating the shells, and putting it out with all the usual toppings (cheese, chopped tomatoes, olives, green onion, salsa, taco sauce, sour cream) and let guests make their own tacos. Thanks for the idea.
