The Breakfast Sandwich Maker’s claim to fame is putting breakfast on the table in 5 mins or less. But what about lunch and dinner? Think past the english muffin and use this versatile appliance to make more than just your favourite breakfast sandwich.
For these taco cups, we swapped our english muffin for a tortilla. Preheat the Breakfast Sandwich Maker then lift the cover and slide out the cooking plate (the top and bottom ring will stack). You won’t need to use the middle cooking plate for these scrumptious cups.
Spray the bottom cooking plate with cooking spray then place the tortilla into the rings. It will form into a bowl shape with the help of the rings. If you want to make the cups ahead of time, use a muffin tin to mold the tortillas then transfer them to the Breakfast Sandwich Maker. Next, add taco filling and top it with your favorite cheese. We used leftover ground beef from our last taco night and sharp cheddar cheese but you could use slow cooker salsa chicken or even carnitas.
Close the cover then cook for 5 to 6 minutes until the tortilla is nice and crispy. Remove the taco cup from the Breakfast Sandwich Maker and load it up with your favourite toppings. Guacamole, sour cream, tomatoes, corn, black beans, salsa, hot sauce – the more the merrier.
These taco cups work as a gameday appetizer, after-school snack, or new addition to your Taco Tuesday menu. They’re a great way to use up the leftovers in your fridge and will surely convince you that the Breakfast Sandwich Maker can help in the kitchen morning, noon, & night.
The big game will be here before you know it. I’ve been busy buying football decorations for the house and scouring Pinterest and my favorite cookbooks for mouth-watering appetizer recipes. You can never have too many dippable, dunkable snacks on the coffee table when you’re watching the game. That’s why these deep fried BBQ Chicken Taquitos will be included in this year’s lineup.
Okay, we can all agree that everything is better deep fried, right? These taquitos are no exception. The cheese, chicken, and barbecue sauce filling gets perfectly melty and oozy while the tortilla fries to a crunchy, golden brown.
These taquitos are handheld and flavourful – two of the must-have requirements to make our gameday roster.
Drizzle a little BBQ sauce over the top of the taquitos and make any extra readily available for dipping purposes – but providing multiple sauces might be fun for your football-frenzied guests. These taquitos would gladly take a dive in chipotle ranch, steaming hot queso, or fresh salsa. Break out the deep fryer, turn on the game, and open wide. Calories don’t count on gameday, right?
In a medium bowl, combine chicken, cheese and barbecue sauce.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture toward one edge of a tortilla. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onions. Roll tortilla to enclose filling. Secure with wooden skewer. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Fry taquitos 3 to 4 at a time, turning once, until golden brown about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with additional barbecue sauce.
