Nacho CupMakes

image

Ingredients: (makes 24)
6 pack of ready made tortilla wraps
Jar of salsa/tortilla dip
Chicken breast, cut finely
Fajita/chicken spice
Coriander powder
Crushed green chillies to taste
Salt to taste
Grated cheese
Chilli doritos/tortillas
Sweetcorn (optional)
Jalape├▒os (optional)

Method:
1. Cook the chicken in a little oil and all the spices till cooked through.
2. Now use a round pastry cutter to cut out 4 circle shaped bases from each of the tortilla wraps, giving you 24 altogether. You might want to put a little oil in the cupcake holes to allow the tortilla bases to stick down. But do not worry too much as the filling will weigh it down later.
3. Add one tsp of the salsa onto each base then two to three pieces of the chicken, the sweetcorn, sprinkle cheese and then crumble some of the tortillas (you can do this after).
4. Put in a preheated oven (about 8 mins) till the bases form a little crust on the outside rims. Careful not to allow them to go too dark or burn.
