Directions

  1. Heat taco shells according to package directions; set shells aside. In a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in undrained chili beans; heat through. Slightly mash beans with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in olives and raisins.
  2. Meanwhile, for almond topper, in a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add almonds; cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes. Stir in cilantro.
  3. To serve, if desired, place some shredded lettuce in bottoms of taco shells. Spoon hot filling into taco shells. Or keep filling warm in a 1-1/2-quart slow cooker and let guests fill the shells. Sprinkle each taco with almond topper. Serve on a bed of shredded lettuce and sprinkle with a little shredded cheese, if desired. Makes 18 to 20 mini tacos.
