I have fond memories of my grandmother making a casserole dish which she lovingly called, “Spanish Delight.” The flavors of this childhood favorite hold a strong, comforting memory for me. These muffin cups remind me of those same festive flavors… with minimal effort. Customize them as you wish with the add-ins you have on hand… and make a few extra, as they make great lunches on the go!
