Our Mini Lasagnas were such a big hit thanks to our thick Bean Good pasta sauce, that I wanted to share a twist on the delicious muffin meals using our thick Enchilada & Pasta Sauce, Bien Good. There are a lot of very watery, vinegary & sugary enchilada sauces on the market. I have ALWAYS made my own because I cannot find one that cooks well and more importantly is good for you! That’s why I invented Bien Good and I’m so happy to share it with you and your family!. Bien Good is the first ORGANIC enchilada sauce – that’s THICK and GOOD FOR YOU! We love the bean and corn puree hidden inside for a boost of fiber and texture. If you haven’t tried this sauce – I can guarantee you’ll love it! So much versatility – watch our blog for tons of fun recipes.
These taco cupcakes pack the perfect portion when you have that Mexican food craving. Check out their nutrition facts: only 130 calories, 2 fat grams, 3 grams of Fiber and 9 grams of Protein per Taco Cupcake. That’s great, you can certainly even have two! And it’s the perfect accompaniment to a salad or bowl of soup.
The other great thing about anything with “Cupcake” in the name, is that KIDS love them! That is win for dinnertime, one meal for the whole family. My kids love to build their own Taco Cupcake…adding their own favorite substitutions (like corn or mozzarella). I promise that including them in the ‘layering’ process will add to their liking the finished product.
I’ve added a secret layer of gooey cheese that looks so indulgent but still good for you. By adding the squash-cheese mixture, you get that gooeyness found in high cheese recipes WITHOUT the fat & guilt! Enjoy this little trick…it pairs beautifully with the tang of Bien Good and packs in more Vitamin A & C. If you weren’t aware already, squash is a very low calorie food, so eat it up this fall!
* I had to sneak this picture in…it wasn’t plated or even topped with avocado/yogurt for this post. This what happened after we shot this post and dug into this deliciousness! LOOK at that gooeyness! And it may look like all cheese…but we know it’s not. Enjoy as much as we did (I think we will be having these again for lunch today!)
These Taco Cupcakes would be perfect for parties…Halloween? Football? They are even delicious the next day for lunches!
