Cheesy Bacon Rotel Cups

Lynn demonstrates how to make an appetizer that would be suitable to take to a 4th of July get together.  Super easy and makes a lot, so can be for a large gathering.


  • 3 (1.9 ounce) boxes of frozen Mini Phyllo (Fillo) Shells - 15 per box
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies), drained
  • ½ cup chopped, cooked bacon or 1 (2.8 ounce) bag bacon bits
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Colby and Monterey Jack Cheese

Preheat oven to 350°.  Remove phyllo shells carefully from the boxes -- you don't have to thaw -- and place shells onto a large  baking sheet.

In a large bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, Rotel and bacon pieces.  Once combined, stir in the cheese.  Scoop 2 Tablespoons of the filling into each phyllo shell.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cheese is melted.
