The key to keeping this recipe nice and easy is to have all your ingredients prepped and made in advance of game day. Prep everything the night before and throw your ingredients in the fridge. Add to a sheet pan, bake for 10 minutes, and serve with your favorite salsas and any additional toppings.

This recipe can easily be made vegetarian by omitting the meat. You can also add whatever other toppings you like to them – The secret to the great flavor in this recipe is the spices so once you add those, you can get creative with the rest. We left quantities off for our toppings because you truly just make these to your preference.
