    Lovin’ this Tex-Mex version!

    Lexi, these look amazing and I can’t wait to try making them! But, there was one thing I noticed in your video…It looked like your skillet and muffin pan were non-stick. I thought non-stick pans were a no-no because they are not healthy to cook with. Please let me know what you think.

    How many muffins are a serving?

  4. Natalie says:

    This is a great mix! But there’s a lot of ingredients that I’m not able to have.
    Can you list primary ingredients that I have to prepare to make it?

    These are absolutely delicious. Eating one now with a salad for lunch. Made one batch in my muffin tin but they stuck a little and I was tired and didn’t want to continue baking them 12 at a time ( I had doubled the recipe) . So I lined a 9×13″ pan with parchment and just baked the whole thing and cut it into squares and it worked perfect. I’ll just freeze the portions that way. I am so excited to try all the delicious recipes on this site. I have 4 more printed and ready to go.
