What’s Cooking with Melissa?

While my team may not be in this year’s Super Bowl it doesn’t mean I won’t be watching.  In order to watch though I need to have snacks and lots of them for my family.  This week I thought I’d share a couple of easy recipes to enjoy while you’re watching the game too.
Mini Taco Bites
1 lb. lean ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 c. onion, finely chopped
1 package taco seasoning
3/4 c. water
2 packages frozen phyllo tart shells (mini size)
Toppings:
1 c. salsa
1 1/2 c. shredded cheese (colby jack, taco blend, cheddar)
1 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 c. sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a skillet cook ground meat and onion until browned.  Stir in taco seasoning and water, simmer for 5 minutes.
Place phyllo shells in mini cupcake pan and spoon in taco mixture into each shell.  Bake 6 minutes.  Sprinkle with a little cheese on each and bake for about 2 minutes longer.
Place on a platter to serve.  Everyone can add their own toppings.
