"I made these for a Holiday Appetizer Party with my cooking and recipes group and they were really good! The amount is approximate, depending on how much you fill the scoops. I had some scoops left over when I got done making mine. "

I made this for a quick Saturday night supper and topped tortilla chips with the mixture. On mine I added some sliced black olives along with the sour cream and extra salsa. Very easy to make and we loved it! Made and reviewed for the Ground Beef Monthly Tag Game in the Game Forum.

We loved them! These Taco Scoops made for a great addition to the appetizer tray on the weekend. I added bits of green and red pepper to half the mixture for variation, both equally good. Made the filling early in the day, all that was required was heating the mixture, filling the scoops and five minutes later ready for the platter. Offered both the Taco flavoured sour cream as well as unseasoned sour cream for topping these awesome little appetizers, I favoured the sour cream others loved the Taco seaoned. They were a big hit at our house! Love when easy looks and tastes this good. Thank you Linda for sharing, your recipe has been added to my Appetizer Cookbook.
