Cut cucumbers into 2 inch slices. Use a melon baller to scoop out most of the inside. In a bowl, combine sour cream, cream cheese, meat, hot pepper sauce, mustard, salt, and pepper. Fill each cup with the dip and keep refrigerated until serving. Right before serving, top with minced green onion and paprika.
