If you feel like getting creative during the nine days (and we won’t blame you if you don’t!), here’s a treat that everyone will love.
1 pound vegetarian ground round
1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
½ teaspoon pepper
36 won ton wrappers
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (15-ounce) can refried beans
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Toppings: sour cream, salsa, guacamole, chopped fresh cilantro, black olive rings
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 18 standard muffin cups (remember recipe is dairy).
In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and brown ground round, onion and garlic, about 5 – 8 minutes. Stir in spices and cook until flavors are incorporated, about 2 minutes.
Place one won ton wrapper in the bottom of each prepared muffin cup. Top with 1 tablespoon of refried beans, 1 crushed tortilla chip, 1 tablespoon of the ground round mixture and 1 tablespoon of cheese. Repeat.
Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from tins and serve with desired toppings.
