Mini fillo shells are one of the best foods in the supermarket, and they're perfect for the holidays. You can fill them with everything from pecan pie filling to chopped salads to guacamole. They're delicious filled with cheese, baked, then topped with salsa. There is a thousand ways to use them, and these recipes that start with mini filo shells are no exception.

You'll find them in the frozen section of your supermarket, near the desserts and pie crusts.

They defrost in just 10 minutes at room temperature, so they're perfect for last minute guests. You can make your own little phyllo shells. Just stack four sheets of thawed phyllo together, brushing each layer with butter. Cut them into 2" squares and press them into mini muffin cups. Bake at 400°F for 5 to 8 minutes until they are crisp and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and store at room temperature in an airtight container so they don't soften. Or freeze them for longer storage.

Enjoy these easy recipes this holiday season and anytime.
