Mini Taco Cups

- Posted in BeFIT Approved Recipes


Special equipment needed:
Mini muffin tins

8 sheets phyllo dough, thawed 3/4 cup fat-free refried beans
1 1/2 teaspoons Taco Seasoning
2 tablespoons black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons sharp cheddar, shredded
2 tablespoons salsa


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place a sheet of phyllo dough on a cutting board, and spritz with nonstick spray. Repeat with 7 more sheets of dough, but do not spray the top of the last sheet. Cut the dough into 12 equal squares. Place one square in each cup of a mini muffin tin. After all the pastry is in the cups, spray the top of the sheets with nonstick spray.

Combine the refried beans and taco seasoning. Fill each cup 3/4 of the way full with the seasoned beans. Top with a half teaspoon each of the black beans and cheese. Bake 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from oven and top with 1/2 teaspoon salsa.
