So, these have now become my super bowl go-to-recipe! A definite crowd pleaser!
They are SO good and addicting! lol
#1 – I make crock pot shredded chicken, which is super easy, and I’ve posted the recipe on the blog.
#2 – I take a plastic tumbler/cup, and with 4 burrito size flour tortillas, I punch out 3 tortilla circles each (= 12 rounds)
*the rest is a little wasteful, so you can make chips with the scraps if you’d like.
#3 – I take out a pan and slightly heat up the rounds just until they are more pliable.
#4 – In a cupcake pan, start lining the cups with the warmed tortilla rounds
Then the layers:
#1 – shredded chicken on the bottom
#2 – black beans (drained & rinsed)
#3 – diced/chopped roma tomatoes
#4 – chopped green onion
#5 – shredded cheese to top it off
Now, you can really do anything here…you can swap chicken for ground or shredded beef, pork, turkey, chilli, vegan, etc.
BAKE @ 425 Degrees – 10-12 minutes – keep an eye on them, you will see the tortilla edges start to brown. I usually pull them at 10 minutes.
I also immediately remove them from the pan & serve. They are easy to pop out with 2 forks I have found.
Lastly, I like to garnish with avocado & hot sauce, your call 🙂
