“These Mexican-style snacks will surely add sparkle to a slumber party spread! To make them, line muffin cups with tortilla shells, then filled each with a not-too-spicy beef mixture kids can garnish with cheese, lettuce and other toppings. For tasty dippers besides, you could serve the cutout stars with salsa.”
