These mini taco bowls are the perfect snack while watching the game. Imagine a warm tortilla shell packed with white or black beans and topped with melted cheddar cheese, ripe black olives, crisp green onion, fresh tomatoes and creamy greek yogurt. You won’t be able to eat just one.

These game day snacks are extremely easy to make. Simply use a circle cookie cutter, round lid or wide mouth glass to cut the disks out of the tortilla. Don’t throw the extra tortilla pieces away; use them the following day but cutting them into strips, baking them and adding them to your salad.

After you have the circles cut out,  tuck them into the cups of your muffin tin. Add the beans, grated cheddar cheese, olives and half of the green onions then bake them for 10 minutes until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Top with tomatoes, greek yogurt and the remaining green onions.
