I used zero net carb tortillas, ground Turkey and added some refried beans to the bottom of the cup before adding the meat mixture.

They were good! I made these but next time I think I would only put three in the pan to cook at a time so I could open the tops a little more. Also I sprinkled mine with a little taco seasoning before I cooked them!
