Taco Cups


1 pound ground beef

1 (1.25 ounce) package of Old El Paso taco seasoning mix

36 wonton wrappers

1 (16 ounce) can refried beans

36 tortilla chips

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

optional toppings: Sour cream, diced tomatoes, cilantro, onion


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 18 muffin cups with cooking spray.

Brown beef in a skillet and drain the fat. Add the taco seasoning mix and water called for on the package and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Set aside.

Place one wonton wrapper in the bottom of each muffin cup. Layer about 1 Tbsp of refried beans on top of each wonton. Crush one tortilla chip on top of the beans. Top with 1 Tbsp of taco meat and 1 Tbsp of shredded cheese. Repeat the layers again with a wonton wrapper, refried beans, tortilla chips, taco meat, and cheese.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove cupcakes from tin and top with your favorite taco toppings (i.e. sour cream, diced tomatoes, onion, or cilantro)
