Spider Web Taco Cups Recipe : So Very Blessed
It’s October, so I can finally post some of the Halloween recipes I’ve been wanting to share! Okay, this recipe doesn’t really have to be labeled “Halloween” if you change the way you add the sour cream, but I just thought this would be a cute little touch to get into Fall mode!\

I could always just throw pumpkin some some recipe like a lot of people have been doing lately, but I’m not a big fan of pumpkin, so that won’t be happening here. Sorry.

But these are way better than pumpkin-y things.  They’re taco cups!  I mean, come on!  Taco-flavored meat, refried beans, cheese, and sour cream all brought together in a neat little individual serving size of Halloween goodness.
