  • 1 box of Phyllo/Fillo mini shells (or 12 slices of bread)
  • 1 tablespoon Corn Kernels
  • 1 tablespoon Black Beans
  • 1 tablespoon Finely Chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon Finely chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoon Shredded cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Roasted cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika or Red chili flakes
  • 2 teaspoon Chopped cilantro leaves
  • Salt to taste



  • Take a bread slice and using a cutter or katoori, cut a circle out of it. Using a rolling pin flatten out the bread circle. Take a muffin pan and press the bread circle firmly inside it.
  • Bake it at 350 degree F for 10 minutes or until light brown.
  • They should look exactly like these. Perfectly toasted and crisp.


  • Time to prepare our Mexican filling.
  • In a bowl assemble all the ingredients one by one - leaving out cheese.
  • Add lemon juice, salt, paprika or red chilies, roasted cumin seeds and 1/2 tablespoon cheese.
  • Give it a good toss and start filling the cups. Don't let it sit, as it will release liquid and that will make our bread soggy.


  • Heat oven at 350 degree F. Using a spoon, generously fill bread cups to the top and sprinkle cheese over it.
  • Bake it in the oven for 5-7 minutes, till the cheese melts.


  • In this recipe I have used phyllo/Fillo mini shells to make these Mexican filled bowls.
  • Start filling up the bowls.
  • Since these bowls are smaller as compared to bread bowls it will hold up just a teaspoon of a quantity.
  • Bowls are filled..
  • Generously top them up with cheese and bake them at 350 degree F for 5-7 minutes.
  • Perfectly baked bowls and cheese is all gooey and soft.
