Shrimp Tarts

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


1-1/2 dozen

"Here in the Southwest, anything with green chilies is sure to please," notes Terry Thompson of Albuquerque, New Mexico. "And these shrimp-and-cheese appetizers are not exception. You can alter the amount of chilies according to your taste."


  • 18 slices white bread
  • Refrigerated butter-flavored spray
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup canned chopped green chilies
  • 1/4 cup diced cooked shrimp
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 18 whole small cooked shrimp
  • Paprika


  1. With a rolling pin, flatten bread to 1/8-in. thickness. Using a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter, cut out a circle from each slice. (Save scraps for another use.) Spritz both sides of circles with butter-flavored spray. Press into ungreased miniature muffin cups. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cheese, chilies, diced shrimp and onion; spoon into cups. Top with whole shrimp and paprika. Broil 5-6 in. from the heat for 2-4 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
