Ingredients  

  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup ground beef or turkey
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 cup finely shredded iceberg or romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup homemade or store-bought guacamole
  • 1/2 cup homemade or store-bought salsa
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  • Arrange the wonton wrappers in a 12-cup muffin pan then spray them lightly with cooking spray. 
  • Bake the wonton cups for 5 minutes then remove them from the oven and set them aside. 
  • Add the vegetable oil to a medium sauté pan set over medium-low heat. Add the ground meat and cook it, breaking it apart with a spatula, until it is browned and cooked through. Add the taco seasoning and stir to combine then remove the pan from the heat.
  • Assemble the taco cups by diving the ground meat evenly among the wonton cups. Top the ground beef with the shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, and a dollop of guacamole, salsa and sour cream then serve. 

Kelly's Note:

  • I know 1/3 cup ground meat may not seem like enough to fill 12 muffin tin cups, I promise it's the perfect quantity!
