This was pretty good. They stuck to the muffin pan really bad though. I would suggest using Pam spray with flour in it. We dipped them in ranch and they were really good like that. Next time I am going to try them with jalapenos in them too.

I made these for a Fiesta themed party. Everyone enjoyed them. I did use some tips from the previous reviews like plenty of Pam to prevent sticking (not a problem) and I threw in one chopped jalapeno for a double batch as well as a little garlic salt and a tiny bit of taco seasoning. They consistency is a lost like a quiche without the crust.

I reviewed this recipe earlier,I took to the dinner party. People ate them but no one when WOW can I have the recipe. Don't think I'll make again.

Prepped these for my best friend's Bridal Shower that I was catering and hosting, but never actually made them until two days after I prepped them. When I finally did make them, I was pleasantly surprised by their flavor. I remember adding some extra spices and taco seasoning, and they had a very pleasant kick. Not AMAZING, but pretty darn good. Will for sure make these again. Thank you!

The texture of these are way way off. The ingredients sounded like it would be good, but just not for us.

Perfect bite size apps. I used some regular onion rather than scallions and it was fine. Definitely will make again, perfect for a party

These were really good!!! They weren't too difficult to get out of the pan... just needed patience! I am trying them now with both ranch and salsa!!
