Dad's Roadhouse Cupcakes

Looking for a quick and easy appetizer for your next gathering?  Give these a try.


1 lb lean ground beef
1/3 cup Five Amigos Fire Roasted Salsa
1 large egg
1 can black beans (drained & rinsed)

Combine ground beef, salsa and egg.  When mixed, portion the mixture into a greased muffin tin.  I used one for 12 muffin s.  Place into a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes and check for doneness.  These actually baked for 35 minutes.

Remove from oven and take cakes from the tin while hot.  There should be grease in the tins, so pat the cakes dry to remove as much as possible.

Place the rinsed and drained black beans into a bowl and blend with a hand blender until you reach the consistency of frosting. Spread the frosting on each cake and garnish with pickled carrots, candied jalapenos, or grape tomatoes.

Serve warm and enjoy!
