Mini Taco Bites

Now that the weather is warming up, my family has gone from eating Crock Pot meals all the time to lighter, more snacky food. We're on the go a lot in the spring and summer months so making big meals just doesn't work for us. Mini Taco Bites are one of our favorites this time of year! They're easy to make and can be a meal or just a snack. Here's what you need:

Soft taco shells
Ground beef
1 packet Taco seasoning
Onions, chopped
Refried Beans
Shredded Mexican blend cheese
Jalapeno peppers
Sour cream
Any other topping you like!


1. Using a biscuit cutter, cut 12 small circles out of the soft taco shells. Microwave for 15 seconds with a damp paper towel covering the shells to soften them. Place them in a muffin tin. 

Brown and drain your ground beef and finish preparing it according to the Taco seasoning directions. Set out everything you want to put in your taco bites and layer the ingredients in the taco shells. 

I put meat on the bottom, then onions, refried beans, cheese and then topped with Jalapeno peppers. 

Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Top with sour cream. 

That's it! Your mini taco bites are ready. For more recipes, check out the Recipes page!

Rice Krispie Treat Bird's Nest {with Reese's Eggs}

Sophie is at that fun age now where she wants to help out a lot in the kitchen. And I love it. I gave her a few recipes to choose from for Easter and the Rice Krispie Treat Bird's Nest was the winner! It's an easy recipe to make with kids and it doesn't take long at all. Here's what you need:

3 Tbsp butter
5 1/2 c. mini marshmallows
6 c. Rice Krispies
Reese's Peanut Butter eggs


Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat and stir in Rice Krispies.

Butter the bottom of a muffin tin. When the Rice Krispie treat mix is cool enough to touch, spoon it into the cupcake tin and press down the center, shaping it into a nest. Allow to cool completely.

Place 2-3 Reese's Peanut Butter eggs in each nest. 

Spoon the nests out of the muffin tin and they're ready to serve!

That's it! For more recipe ideas, check out the Recipes page
