Egg Filled Tortilla Cups

Egg filled tortilla cups make a great appetizer or starter for your next gathering. Cottage cheese lends a creamy texture to fresh ingredients like green onion, celery, sweet red pepper and eggs. A hint of chili pepper and dry mustard adds kick to this mixture that’s baked into ramekins lined with flour tortillas, forming the convenient bite-sized cups.
