How to Make Taco Cups
Making the taco cups with wontons is simpler than you may think! Just take a muffin pan and lightly spray with cooking spray or brush with olive oil.
Now create cups in each space with wonton wraps. Use two wonton wraps per muffin cup to make a thicker base for the ground beef mixture to sit in.
Using a large spoon, fill the cups with the taco seasoned ground beef mixture. Bake this in the oven for 10 minutes, then remove.
Sprinkle cheese over each of the cups and then place the muffin tin back into the oven for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and top each cup with sour cream, salsa & finely chopped lettuce.
Add other toppings as desired, such as diced green onions, green chilies, and diced tomatoes instead of salsa.
Instead of beef, you could try diced cooked chicken for chicken wonton tacos.
