Several years ago I tried a version of these cups at a restaurant in Santa Fe, and I wanted to make my own spin. These are great for gatherings where you can let everyone add their own favorite toppings. —Marla Clark, Moriarty, New Mexico

"Great flavor and super easy to put together on a weeknight. To make this even easier instead of baking them in the muffin cups I just bought tostada shells and spread the mixture on there and bake as directed. Turns out perfect each time!"

"So easy and so tasty! I brought out radishes, avocado, cilantro, and salsa as our toppings, but my youngest children also loved them plain."

"We absolutely loved these! I mixed everything in the skillet to warm except the cheese. No need to layer at all. Great flavor!"
