Featured Recipe: Boo-rito Bites

Boo-rito Bites

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can (16 oz.) refried beans
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup sliced ripe olives, divided
  • 4 tubes (13.8 oz. each) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups (12 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beans, taco seasoning and salsa. Stir in beef, cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup olives.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, unroll one pizza crust; cut into 25 circles with a 2-in. biscuit or round cookie cutter. Repeat with remaining pizza dough. Reroll scraps to form 50 balls.
  4. Place 1 heaping tablespoon beef mixture on the center of half of the circles. Top with remaining circles; pinch the edges to seal. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets; gently shape into ghosts. Brush with egg whites; press two dough balls into sides to form arms. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese; top each with sliced olives for the eyes and mouths.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
