Recipe by SusieQusie

Unusual use for your mini muffin tin. Another winner from my infamous state fair cookbook.

We all thought these were tasty. I used the handle of my metal ice cream scooper as a "stamper" to form the meat "shell". Next time I would omit the oats and use the crushed tortilla chips there instead. Also I do not recommend using low fat sour cream- after baking it had a weird texture. All and all a good recipe that came together quicker than I thought it would and was well received at our party. Thanks for posting!

  7. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven & immediately top with jalapeno slices.
