Easy little taco bites made with wonton wrappers and classic taco makings.
Ingredients
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • ⅔ cup diced green chiles
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp taco seasoning
  • ½ cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 2 green onions, sliced
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Shred lettuce and dice avocado and set aside.
  3. Brown the ground beef with onion, green chiles, cumin, salt, pepper and taco seasoning. Drain off fat.
  4. While beef is browning, put each wonton wrapper in its own cup in a mini muffin pan. Push it down to make a cup shape, then bake them for about 3 minutes or until they are just starting to brown.
  5. Place the wonton wrapper cups on a large plate and then put about ½ tsp cheese and ½ to 1 tsp ground beef mixture in each cup. Top each with a little bit of salsa, about ½ tsp.
  6. Microwave the plate of filled wonton cups for about 30 seconds or until the cheese melts. You can fit about a dozen in the microwave at a time, so you'll have to do it in two batches.
  7. Top each mini-taco with a bit of shredded cheese, lettuce, avocado, sour cream, green onions, and salsa. You can't go wrong here - use all or just some of these ingredients and place them on in any order you wish.
