Mini Wonton Taco Cups

Whether you’re celebrating Taco Tuesday, looking for a fun game day snack or party appetizer, these mini wonton taco cups are perfect! 

You can easily swap out ingredients with your favorite – go meatless with beans, top with salsa, or add your favorite veggies. These fun bite-sized appetizers are totally customizable.

Nutrition Tip: These fun little snacks pack nutrients that kids need, including protein, fiber, and iron. And chopped avocado, full of heart-healthy fat, makes them even more satisfying.

In this recipe, we cook together lean ground beef, taco seasoning, tomatoes, peppers, onions and cilantro to create our taco filing. Then, line a mini cupcake pan with wonton wrapped, fill with taco filling, top with cheese and bake! Pi

Once they come out of the oven, we love to add avocado but you can also add salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or fresh chopped tomatoes, green onions and cilantro.
