We were having tacos for dinner, had won tons in the fridge, thought why not? It was a big hit! Nice way to change up taco night! Can be served as a meal with refried beans, mexican rice. Or great as an appetizer! I've also added a pic of a healthier, lighter version of this recipe...

These savory bites are a wonderful served as an appetizer. We took Mindy's suggestion and made up some rice and refried beans to turn these yummy apps into a memorable Mexican-inspired meal!
