Ingredients:

Materials:

  • 4-inch cookie cutter
  • Muffin tin

Step 1: Using a 4-inch cookie cutter and 6-inch tortillas, cut out 12 tortilla circles. (Tip: Cut the remaining tortilla edges into pieces, brush with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, spread out on a baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes at 375 degrees, then flip over and bake for 5 minutes more — dessert!)

Step 2: Mold tortilla circles into muffin tin cups and fill your taco bites starting with a layer of cheese, then refried beans, and finally another layer of shredded cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees or until cheese is melted.
