Baked Monster Eyes

Makes: 32 eyeballs
Preparation time: 20 minutes


1 pound lean ground beef
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
2 tablespoons ice water
1/2 cup shredded mexican cheese blend
1 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 cup sour cream
32 black olive halves
taco sauce


Combine the ground beef, taco seasoning, and ice water. Press firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the mini-muffin pans. Sprinkle the cheese and then the tortilla chips over the bottom and sides of the beef mixture. Press gently into the beef to hold the mixture on the sides.

Spoon the sour cream into each meat cup. Top with a half olive, cut side up. Fill the cavity in the olive with the taco sauce. Bake at 375° F for 10 minutes.
