Taco Bites

by Jen on February 14, 2012

Good morning!  How are you today?  I’m doing okay, besides having a leaky faucet for a nose.  UGH.  All 5 of us are sick.  Some worse than others.  I’m hoping it all goes away soon.

When I’m sick, the last thing I feel like doing is slaving away in the kitchen to make dinner.  But I’m also not a fan of takeout food.  So in my effort to avoid work and greasy food, I look for an easy dinner to make.

And man oh man, do I have an easy dinner for you.  It’s a twist on an old favorite.

Taco Bites

Ingredients

  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1 package low-sodium taco seasoning (or make your own)
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • chopped lettuce
  • chopped tomatoes
  • chopped black olives
  • salsa
  • sour cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Press wonton wrappers into muffin tin and bake in oven for approximately 5 minutes (or until starting to turn golden). Remove from oven.
  3. In a skillet, cook ground beef until no longer pink. Add taco seasoning according to package directions.
  4. Spoon a tablespoon of seasoned beef into each wonton cup and top with some grated cheese.
  5. Place wontons back into the oven and cook until cheese is melted (approximately 5 - 10 minutes).
  6. Remove wontons from oven, serve on individual plates, and top with your favorite toppings.

Okay, so I know you could just go out and buy regular taco shells at your grocery store, but these are so much more fun.  And they are easy for little hands to hold.  My kids and hubby loved these taco bites.  I loved how easy they were to make and how fun they were to eat.

If you don’t like beef, you could use ground chicken or turkey.  Or if you are vegetarian you could fill them with refried beans!  The possibilities and endless.
