Mini taco boats with a hidden layer of homemade queso. Topped with any taco fillings you like. Such a fun appetizer!
Taco Boat Toppings:
1) In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and ground beef. Cook ground beef for 4-5 minutes until it’s browned, breaking it up as it cooks. Then add water, Old El Paso Taco seasoning and drained and rinsed black beans. Stir together and turn heat down to low. Keep mixture warm while making other fillings. If the skillet looks too dry at any point, add more water by the 1/4 cup.
2) For queso, add butter and flour to a small pot over low heat. Whisk together to form a roux. Once mixture turns a light tan color, slowly whisk in warmed milk until the mixture turns into a thick sauce. Then add grated cheese and stir into the sauce to thicken it even more. Season with salt and pepper.
3) Prepare other toppings ingredients.
4) Make a molten taco boat by spooning in queso into the bottom of a mini taco boat. Top with ground beef mixture and any toppings you like. Serve immediately!
