Scary Taco Tarts

After making all the traditional shapes we had (black cat, ghost,  witch, pumkin, and moon)  we got creative with the coloring and made Garfield and a striped ghost that has style.  Sadly, these shapes went quickly, but were yummy!

Picture 04291 box of refridgerated pie crust

1/2 pound of hamburger meat

1 can refried beans

mexican cheese

2 egg whites(or however many colors you will be using)

1 tsp of chili powder

1 tsp of red pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 tsps. of taco bell seasoning

food coloring

halloween cookie cutters

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook meat in a large skillet on medium heat and add spices and refried beans.  Roll out  pie crusts and use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes.  You will need two of each shape to create one tart.  Place 1 tablespoon of the mixture onto one of each pair and sprinkle cheese on top.  Place the second shape on top and press edges down to seal.  Put egg whites into separate bowls and color as desired with food coloring.  Take a brush and paint the tarts as desired.  Place in oven on greased cookie sheet until crispy.  Kind of dry so you might want to have a salsa dip or something on the side.
