No doubt if you're on Pinterest you've seen these floating around for a while now. I tried the mini lasagna cups back in March and loved them. I just don't see how anyone wouldn't like these. Fun to make too!
7/17/13 - Baked bottom wontons prior to assembling! Crispy!
1 lb lean ground beef (or chicken, turkey, whatevs)
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can black beans, drained/rinsed
24 wonton wrappers (Kroger has these in the organic refrigerated section, next to the tofu)
1/2 c queso dip
1 c chunky salsa
2 c shredded Mexican cheese, red-fat
green onions, chopped
guacamole/sour cream for serving
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12 muffin cups and set aside. Brown ground beef in pan, add taco seasoning & black beans. Let cook for a couple minutes and remove from heat.
Push 1 wonton wrapper into the bottom of each muffin cup. Bake these wontons for 3-5 minutes in the oven. This will help them get crispy. Next, spoon a little queso onto the wonton and spread it on the bottom. Follow by spooning a little bit of beef/bean mixture on top. Remember, you're going to be doing two layers here, so only use a little. Spoon a little salsa on top of that, and then sprinkle just a little cheese. Now do it again! Press another wonton wrapper on top of each one and repeat the steps on each cupcake - queso, meat/beans, salsa, cheese. Bake about 20 min until golden brown and sprinkle with green onions! Let cool 5 min in the pan before removing taco cups, and top with whatever taco toppings you want.
