Mini Tazas


A little tortilla cup with flavorful fillings.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded jack
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, queso fresco or panela
  • 1/4 cup black beans, drained
  • 1 serrano chile finely diced
  • 1/4 cup finely diced canned red chile peppers
  • 1/4 cup cotija


Lightly grease 2 mini muffin pans. Using a cookie cutter, cut small rounds out of the tortillas. When you have all the rounds you'll need, warm them slightly. Use your fingers to press one into each of the mini muffin tin cups. You may need to make a small cut on opposite edges to help the rounds conform to the mini cups.

Fill each cup with 4-5 black beans, a pinch of each shredded cheese, a sprinkle of serrano and some diced chile peppers.

Bake in a 425 degree oven for 5-8 minutes or until tortillas begin to brown and cheese is bubbly.

Top with a pinch of crumbled cotija cheese.
