Taco Cupcakes 

Last night I decided to try something a little different for dinner.  I made Taco cupcakes.  They have pretty much the same ingredients as regular tacos but in a “cupcake,” easier to eat method. 


Here are the ingredients I used. 

I used wonton wrappers instead of tortillas to make these.  I sprayed the cups of my muffin tin with cooking spray and then lined the cups with one wrapper each.

Into each one I added a tablespoon of Refried beans. 

Topped that with grated cheese, about a tablespoon each cup. 

I quartered the rest of the wonton wrappers and used one quarter in each cup on top of the beans and cheese, pressing it into a cup shape. 

I browned and drained the ground beef then added the taco seasoning and water. 

I put a tablespoon of the ground beef mixture into each cup.

I sprinkled it with more grated cheese. 

Then I baked it at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. 

I topped the baked cupcakes with sour cream, diced tomatoes and chopped green onions. And served it with Taco Salad, the recipe I will share tomorrow!
