These are easily customizable little pie that you can tailor to your personal tastes, dress them like you would a taco.

You can use what ever flavor Doritos you like for these, I used the Nacho Cheese ones for color.

You can make the Crusts a day ahead just store them in an air tight container.

You can add Avocado, Guacamole, Salsa or Red Onion or anything you like.

  1. Pre Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. To make the Crusts add the Doritos and the Shredded Cheese to a food processor and process until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. While the food processor is running slowly pour the Canola Oil in and then follow with the Water.
  4. The mixture should hold together when squeezed.
  5. Press into 6 mini tart pans or 1 x 10 inch tart tin.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until crust is golden.
  7. Set aside to cool.
  8. Drain the Beans (reserving the liquid) add to a pot with the Refried Beans, add the seasoning and let cook over a medium heat until heated through. Add a little of the liquid from the Beans so you can stir it easily.
  9. To serve spoon the Bean mixture into the Shells and garnish with the toppings.
