Tips and warnings

  • For a quick change, use refrigerated rolls or bisquits. Cut the bisquits into 4 pieces and press one piece into each mini muffin cup, making sure to go up the sides slightly with the dough. Fill as above and bake at the temp/time on the package.
  • If refried beans are added, either eliminate the beef entirely, or place beans on the bottom, topped with layer of beef, etc.
