  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 32 black olive halves

  1. Mix together the ground beef, taco seasoning, and ice water. Press into 32 mini tart (or muffin) tins. Press firmly into the bottom and up the sides of the pans.
  2. Sprinkle the cheese and then the tortilla chips over the bottom and sides of the beef mixture, gently pressing into the beef if necessary to hold the mixture on the sides.
