Taco Cups

This is another appetizer I made for New Years Day and I guarantee you will make these once and you will be instantly hooked and want to put everything into a little won ton cup. I had no idea how easy it was to use these little tiny pieces of pasta. This came together so quick and you could use so many variations. I cant wait to be invited to more parties so I can experiment more, or just create a whole dinner with won tons!

Taco Cups


24 wonton wrappers

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 pkg. (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning mix

1/2 cup Chunky Salsa

4 oz. shredded Mexican cheese blend (about 1 cup)

Sour cream (optional)

Sliced pitted ripe olive (optional)


Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Press the wonton wrappers into 24 (1 1/2-inch) mini muffin-pan cups. 2

Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Pour off any fat. Stir in the taco seasoning mix3

Spoon the beef mixture into the wonton cups. Top with the salsa and cheese.4

Bake for 5 minutes or until the wontons are golden brown and the cheese is melted.5

Garnish with sour cream and olives, if desired. Serve immediately with additional salsa.

NOTE: These reheat beautifully! I had some leftovers and popped them back in the over to melt the cheese and they were just as good.
