Taco "Cupcakes"


These "cupcakes" are a great appetizer for the Super Bowl! This is very simple and the kids can have fun helping you make the "cupcakes".

Here is what you will need:
  • 1 lb ground turkey or beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 2 cups 2% cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 36 wonton wrappers
  • favorite taco toppings - salsa, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, etc
  • cooking spray


Here we go ...
Preheat oven to 375

Brown the meat in a skillet and drain off fat. Return the meat to the skillet and add the taco seasoning, water and black beans.  Mix and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until water is absorbed.

Spray 18 regular muffin pan cups with cooking spray.  Place one wonton wrapper in each muffin cup. Use half of the taco meat between muffin cups.  Sprinkle half of the cheese over the meat and then REPEAT layers - wonton wrapper, taco meat and cheese.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.  Top with your favorite taco toppings.
