Taco "Cupcakes"


   Thanks to Pinterest I've added a hundred new recipes to my already giant 'must make' list. Needless to say, these babies were one of them. I had good intentions of posting another yummy dinner idea today, but it's just gonna have to wait. The big Super Bowl is next Sunday so I thought I'd start posting some appetizer ideas. These Taco Cupcakes would be perfect to serve during the big game!



    I made these for dinner the other night and let's just say they were gone fast. They were so delicious. You can eat them with your hands, or with a fork. We liked eating them with our hands, like you do a 'real' cupcake. Of course, don't forget the salsa and sour cream. These will be a huge hit at your football party!



Taco Cupcakes

1 pound lean ground beef (I used 96% lean)
1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
36 wonton wrappers
Favorite Taco toppings: salsa, sour cream, etc


DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain grease. Stir in taco seasoning, water and black beans. Bring mixture to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Let simmer for 10 minutes, or until water is absorbed.

Spray 18 regular muffin cups with cooking spray. Place one wonton wrapper in each muffin cup. Divide half of the meat mixture between muffin cups. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the meat. Repeat layers with another wonton wrapper, taco meat and cheese.

Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and wrappers are golden brown. Serve with your favorite taco toppings!


Recipe from: Plain Chicken


Spray muffin cups with cooking spray. Place one wonton wrapper in each cup.
Add 2-3 Tablespoons taco meat mixture, then sprinkle a little cheese over meat.





Repeat layers! One more wonton wrapper,
a little meat and a little more cheese...





Pop those bad boys in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes.





Mmmmmmm!





Serve with salsa and sour cream! 

 Enjoy ♥

I love these! However, I'm having a problem with the bottoms...they don't get crispy or brown at all, end up kind of mushy on bottom. I thought maybe I used too much nonstick spray the first time, so I used a lot less the second time with pretty much same results. Any suggestions or ideas??
