Mini Fajita Salad Bites

Are these not the cutest little things ever!?! They look like miniature taco salads. The kids had so much fun eating them. I had a hard time keeping little fingers from sneaking a few while I was filling them. Of all places, I found this recipe in a Schwan's catalog. I didn't order anything (I'm to cheap!), but the Schwan's man left me a catalog last week. I was flipping through and saw these adorable little bites and knew I had to try them. They're very easy and inexpensive coming it at about $1.00 per serving. If you don't like fajita seasoning you could easily use taco seasoning.

MINI FAJITA SALAD BITES

Brown and drain beef. Stir in water, fajita seasoning, and salsa. Cook an additional 3 minutes. Place scoops on serving plate. Spoon meat filling into each and top with lettuce, cheese, salsa and sour cream (or toppings of your choice). Enjoy :P

Didn't you know that cheap is the new expensive? LOL

It's amazing what you can do with a simple slice of bread. You produced a cheap, tasty meal AND pleased that cutie pie. Well done!
