Taco Bites

My mom claims that everything I cook now is in muffin tins but I just can’t help it…they make perfect portion sizes!!  Rob was out golfing so I threw these taco bites together quick when he was on his way home.  They take 30 minutes tops and are seriously amazing.  I think the best part is the melty queso layer in the middle but the hot salsa and the flavorful taco meat all make it.   Size in pictures can be kind of deceiving but these are actually pretty big and definitely filling.  I cut myself off at three and was totally satisfied with just that.  (I forgot to make a side dish!)
