Fiesta Wonton Taco Cups

Happy Fiesta, friends!

We are celebrating all week long here in San Antonio so I made these delicious Fiesta Wonton Taco Cups
as an easy dinner for my family before we head out to the parades. 
There crunchy mini taco cups are perfect for a kid friendly dinner or party finger food!
Stay tuned for more Fiesta fun on the blog this weekend! 

Ingredients:

Makes about 30
  • 1 12oz package wonton wrappers or egg roll wrappers
  • 1.5 lbs ground beef or salsa chicken
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning {my recipe here}
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 16oz can refried beans 
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
  • jalapeno slices, for topping {optional}
  • sliced olives, for topping {optional}

Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet crumble the beef over medium heat. 
  3. Cook, stirring, until no longer pink. 
  4. Drain excess grease and then add taco seasoning, stirring to coat.
  5. Finally, add salsa and set aside. 
  6. Meanwhile, warm up the refried beans until smooth in a saucepan. Set aside. 
  7. If using egg roll wrappers cut into 4 squares. 
  8. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray and press each wonton wrapper into each space in the muffin tin.
  9. Add a spoonful of beans to each wonton and top with a spoonful of ground beef. 
  10. Top with a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
  11. Bake for 10-12 minutes until crispy.
  12. Top with jalapenos and sliced olives if you'd like and serve with sour cream.
You can use either wonton wrappers or if you can't find them 
like me use larger egg roll wrappers and cut into 4 squares. 
In a large skillet crumble the beef over medium heat until no longer pink.
Drain excess grease and then add taco seasoning stirring to coat.
Finally, add salsa and set aside. 
I also like using half ground beef and half shredded chicken or already cooked Salsa Chicken
Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray and press each wonton wrapper into each space in the muffin tin.
Warm up the refried beans until smooth in a saucepan and add a spoonful of beans to each wonton.
Top with a spoonful of ground beef or chicken. 
Top each with a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes until crispy.
Top with jalapenos and sliced olives if you'd like and serve with sour cream.
These tasty bites will be gone in minutes then it is time to Fiesta like there is no maƱana!
