1/2 pound ground sirloin
2 tablespoons 40%-less-sodium taco seasoning
1/2 cup bottled salsa
2 tablespoons canned chopped green chiles
24 mini phyllo shells
1/2 cup (2 ounces) reduced-fat shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup bottled salsa
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream


Preheat oven to 350°.

Cook beef and taco seasoning in a large skillet over medium-high heat until beef is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain, if necessary; return to pan. Add 1/2 cup salsa and chiles, and stir.

Fill phyllo shells evenly with meat mixture. Top evenly with cheese. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated and cheese melts. Remove from oven, and top each taco cup with 1/2 teaspoon each of salsa and sour cream.
