These are especially great if you’re trying to make food that is easy to grab and go, already portioned out for each person. They look so fun and kids will love them so much. These cups are also vegan (assuming you get all vegan ingredients), and can be made gluten-free depending on the tortilla or chips you use.
Although we made our own “tortilla chips,” you could easily purchase any chips or use vegetables to dip with! Just like normal tacos, these Halloween taco cups are totally customizable for what you want or need to serve. Not only are they customizable, but they are super easy! It’s almost like making tiny layered dips in individual cups. If you’re making them for a large group of people (maybe some picky eaters), mix and match the dips so there are options with different combinations, making everybody happy!
Halloween Taco Cups
- Preheat oven to 350º F. Place tortilla on cutting board and use a paring knife to cut out spooky shapes: headstones, trees, ghosts, etc. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and spray both sides with cooking spray, and sprinkle with salt. Bake for about 10 minutes, until lightly browned and crispy. Let cool. Using icing gel or edible marker (like Wilton), write RIP on tombstones.
- Set out 4 clear plastic cups (8 oz cups) and evenly distribute black bean hummus into each cup. Then add pico de gallo, and finally topping with guacamole. Top with green onion, cilantro, and black olives. Prop tortilla cut outs into guacamole and serve!
