Mini BBQ Beef Cups


These mini BBQ beef cups are a hit at parties!  It’s the same recipe as my regular BBQ beef cups, which you can find HERE.  To make them mini, just use half a biscuit and bake them in mini muffin tins.  This recipe is easily doubled for a crowd.



This is my attempt to copy some amazing enchiladas that a good friend of mine makes.  These are the best enchiladas ever and are so easy to make!

1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1lb Ground Beef (or shredded/ground chicken)
1 Large Onion, chopped
1 (3.8oz) Can Sliced Black Olives
1 Bunch Green Onions, sliced
8oz Cheddar or Mexican Style Cheese, shredded
1 (28oz) Can Macayo’s Red Enchilada Sauce
12-16 Small Flour Tortillas
Sour Cream, for serving

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the beef once the pan is hot, cooking until browned.  Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes to soften.

Transfer the beef and onions in a large bowl and add the olives, green onions and half the cheese.  Stir to combine.

Pour enough enchilada sauce into a casserole dish to coat the bottom.  Dip a tortilla on both sides into the enchilada sauce.  Place a large spoonful of the filling on the center of the tortilla and roll up.  Place the enchilada seam side down.  Repeat with the remaining tortillas, adding more sauce to the dish as needed.

Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and top with the remaining cheese.  Transfer the dish to the preheated oven and bake until bubbly and hot, about 20-30 minutes.

Serve with sour cream.

Yield: 12-15 enchiladas

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

These cheesy biscuits are adapted by a good friend of mine from a Paula Deen recipe.  So good!!


1 ¼ cups Biscuit Mix
1 cup grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Milk
Garlic Butter –
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 400°F, line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, stir together the biscuit mix and cheese.  Add the milk, stirring to combine.

Drop spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.  12 biscuits total.

When the biscuits are almost done baking, combine the melted butter (microwave a few seconds), garlic powder, salt and parsley.  Brush the garlic butter on the hot biscuits right when they come out of the oven.

Serve warm.

Yield: 12 Biscuits
