This is a guest post from Gina of Kleinworth & Co.

I don’t know about you but it seems the one thing I really dread is planning for & making dinner. It seems just as soon as the day gets started, I blink my eyes & it’s already time to think about the evening meal. I have recently started meal planning with some other blogger friends of mine & it has certainly helped in that prep process. However, sometimes I have leftovers from those great meals & I want to create something out of the box with them. It’s never quite the same when you just reheat & repeat. One fun recipe idea for those leftovers is taco cups.

These are so simple to make & the kids just devour them like they haven’t eaten in days. Something about changing up the packaging makes it taste better & enhances the leftover experience. The best part is that these require as little as 4-5 ingredients but you can always add more if you desire. I chose to keep it simple here & I’ll let you decide what other toppings & add-ins you might like to include later.

You only need 5 simple ingredients for easy taco cups!

Here is what you need:

2 cups shredded chicken (from rotisserie or other leftovers)
1/1/2 cups shredded cheese
1 cup diced tomatoes
⅓ cup sour cream
2-3 large flour tortillas

The first step of this easy taco cups recipe is to cut out mini tortillas. Fun!

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Start by taking something like a jar lid as your template & cutting around it to make your mini tortilla rounds. I was able to get 5 minis out of one large tortilla.

Place the mini tortillas at the bottom of a muffin pan to create easy taco cups!

Step 2: Place in the bottom of your muffin tins.
