Mini Nacho Taco Poppers

I love tacos, loaded nachos, pico de gallo, guacamole, and lots of sour cream. This dish is great as an appetizer, a quick snack, and great for game night. Quick and easy to whip up. These mini taco poppers are going to disappear quickly from the serving tray, they have the right amount of salsa, cheese, and sour cream that your guest are going to devour them.

These bite size tortilla scoops are sturdy enough to handle seasoned ground turkey, salsa, cheese, sour cream, a sprinkle of lime juice,and topped with cilantro leaf. It will be a true hit at any game day party or grill side kick. This appetizer can be enjoyed all year round.
