Wonton Taco Cups

It's baseball playoff season and that calls for something fun to share with friends on game night! 
These wonton taco cups are a great alternative to nachos on an appetizer buffet.

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 2 envelopes taco seasoning
  • 48 wonton wrappers
  • oil for brushing
  • salt
  • 3 cups shredded mexican cheese blend
  • 2 cups pico de gallo (or salsa)
  • 2 cups guacamole  
  • 1 cup sour cream 

  1. Scramble fry ground beef and onion over medium heat until browned. 
  2. Add taco seasoning and set aside.  
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  4. Place 24 wonton wrappers on work surface.  Lightly brush both sides with oil.  
  5. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  6. Fit wonton wrapper into a muffin cup, folding and pressing the wrapper into the side to form a cup, making sure the four corners are pointing up. Continue in the same way filling 2 pans (24 cups)
  7. Fill with 1 heaping tablespoon of taco mixture and sprinkle with cheese.
  8. Brush 24 more wonton wrappers with oil, sprinkle lightly with salt and press shells over shells in muffin tins so that now you have 8 tips pointing up in each cup. 
  9. Add another tablespoon of meat into each cup and sprinkle with cheese.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. 
  11. Add a spoon each of pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream and serve warm.
