  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 taco seasoning packet
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cup black beans canned
  • 1 can refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1/3 of a 16 oz. block of velveeta Mexican
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Toppings: 1 chopped tomato shredded lettuce, sliced black olives, sour cream


  • In a skillet, brown ground beef. Drain.
  • Add taco seasoning packet and water. Bring to a simmer. Let cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove dough from can and unroll. Cut dough into 12 squares.
  • Spray a muffin tin with cooking oil spray.
  • Place a square of dough into each muffin cup and press down on bottom and up sides lightly.
  • Fill each cup with ground beef to the top of cup (about a 1/4 cup).
  • Bake at 425 for 10 to 12 minutes or until dough turns golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • While muffin cups bake, melt cheese over medium heat with milk. Stir frequently.
  • To serve: Remove muffin cup from muffin tin. Top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and olives. Serve with sour cream.


-Black beans are optional. They can also be added to muffin cups after filling if you have some that would prefer no beans. Just add about a teaspoon of beans to the muffin cups once you add the meat.
-You can use regular Velveeta if you prefer less spice.
