Taco-Diles Tacos

Snappy cheesy Tacos inspired by the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2


Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Meal type: Party Food

Portions: 8


8 Hard taco shells, warmed

1 Pound lean minced beef

8 Ounces taco sauce

1 Red bell pepper

1 Cup sour cream

1 Tablespoons ketchup

Hot sauce, to taste

1 Cup grated cheddar cheese

1 ½ Cups chopped fresh tomatoes

1 ½ Cups shredded lettuce

Pitted black olives, sliced 



  • Step 1

    Brown the mince until no pink remains. Drain on paper towels and return to pan, add taco sauce and keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Cut the red pepper into small triangles, about ½ inch on each side.

  • Step 3

    Combine the sour cream with ketchup and add hot sauce to taste. Transfer to a squeeze bottle.

  • Step 4

    Assemble the tacos. Divide the meat among the taco shells and follow with the cheese, tomatoes and lettuce; the taco shells should be quite full. Squeeze a line of sour cream at the back edge of each taco above the lettuce. Set the red pepper ‘teeth’ into the sour cream, which will hold it in place. Place two black olive slices above the red pepper for eyes.
