The Southwestern-inspired flavors of Pace® Picante Sauce combined with Cheddar cheese and chili powder create these delicious appetizers.
Heat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease 24 (3-inch) muffin-pan cups.
Beat the eggs, picante sauce, flour and chili powder in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk. Stir in the cheese and onion.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture into each muffin-pan cup. Bake for 10 minutes or until the bites are golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature with additional picante sauce.
Very good with some tweeking
I agree with some that this needs more flavor. The second time I made these, I used Rotel tomatoes and chili's instead of picante sauce. (I forgot to buy the picante sauce) . I added just a touch of hot sauce and cayenne. Then I cooked a little bulk type sausage and very soft scrambled some eggs in with the sausage, added a touch of hot sauce and spooned it over the base recipe before cooking.
They were AWESOME for a finger food breakfast for a road trip.
I used a hot picante sause and also added chicken & chopped chili's for more flavor. I also used a smaller size muffin tin. They came out good. You just have to doctor the recipe up a bit but their ideal for an appetizer if their made smaller. Went over great in my house!
so easy to make
Made these in a mini muffin tin, to take to girls night at church, everyone loved them and I brought home an empty container.
Chili Con Queso Bites
Nothing but a mushy mess. No flavor, they didn't completely fall apart but there was no way this was finger food.
I didn't care for the egg in this recipe. also, once cold they were not too good.
