Please note that this recipe is not vegetarian, allergy-friendly, low calorie, gluten-free, or dairy-free.
The magic of these cheesy Mexican nibbles lies in the combination of ingredients: 1 lb ground beef, 1/2 cup black beans (cooked), 1/2 cup refried beans, 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, 12 mini tortilla shells, 1/4 cup diced onion, 1/4 cup diced tomato, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, 2 cloves garlic (minced), 1 tbsp olive oil, and an array of spices including chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, dried oregano, cayenne pepper (optional), salt and pepper. Each ingredient adds its unique flavor profile to create these mouthwatering FiestaNibbletizers.
To make these baked mini Mexican bites follow these simple instructions: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Dice the onion and tomato and chop the cilantro using a chef’s knife. In a large skillet over medium heat add olive oil followed by diced onion and minced garlic; cook until softened. Add ground beef to the skillet along with chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, dried oregano, cayenne pepper (optional), salt and pepper; cook until browned. Drain any excess fat, then stir in black beans and refried beans. Place mini tortilla shells on the lined baking sheet, spoon equal amounts of beef mixture onto each shell, and top with diced tomato and shredded Mexican cheese blend. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Finally, garnish your FiestaNibbletizers with chopped cilantro.
In conclusion, these ground beef mini tacos are a must-try for anyone looking to add some Mexican flair to their party menu or simply craving a delicious snack.
