My Food Production students and I created this little treat. We served them at my mother's retirement party, because she loved her sample she got when we first produced them. They are a fun twist on finger food and very adaptable.

  • 1
    Crumble ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until evenly browned, and grain off grease. Add taco seasoning, green pepper, and onion; cook according to package directions (add water). Add Mexi-corn and green chilies, heat through. Set aside.
