At a time when I was about to relocate my husband to the dog house forever he raved over these. He’s back in like flint and ready never to question my culinary efforts should I ever cook again a recipe of HIS own choosing. Oh, instead of greasing the muffin cups I brushed vegetable oil on the bottom of each round. I saved the hot sauce for dashing on top with a wonderful effect. Chopped jalepenos on top would be great, too.
My grand children loved these. Omitting sour cream, would you freeze before or after baking so I have them ready for after school snack.
