Iron Cupcake - Savory

Boy, I had a hard time deciding what to do with this month's challenge. I've been so busy with my gardening, trying to make a decent vanilla cupcake, and getting ready for next week's Iron cupcake Milwaukee, that I almost skipped this challenge. But I'm glad I didn't. These don't really look much like cupcakes - but my family sure liked it....Of course, around here we like just about anything with Guac...

Black Bean Loaf Savory Cuppies

1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can corn, rinsed
1/2 can diced jalapenos
1/2 can diced green chili's
1 small bag shredded taco cheese
2 1/2 cups cooked rice
16 oz. can tomato sauce
15 oz can diced tomatoes (I used a brand with onion, garlic and chili)
2 tsp salt
tobasco sauce
corn tortillas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake pan. cut circles out of corn tortillas to fit in bottom of cupcake pan. I cut out 2 per muffin, then put about a tsp of cheese in between the layers.
Mix everything but the corn torillas, reserving some of the cheese, in a large bowl.
Place rice mix ontop of tortillas and bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Let sit for a few minutes to set, other wise you'll have a big sloppy mess as you try to get your cupcake out!!!

Top with fresh Guacamole and Pico de Gallo - then enjoy!!
