Yes, you heard it right! These are delicious, and for those of you with some young'uns that can be picky, these should win their little hearts over!

The recipe says it makes 18, however, I only have one 12 count cupcake pan. There was a little leftover meat, but I stuffed as much as I could onto the second layer!

If you are feeding more than two, I would recommend doubling this recipe and have two 12 count muffin tins.




1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
2/3 cupwater
1 can black beans; drained
2 cups cheddar cheese; shredded
36 wonton wrappers

.


Taco Cupcakes Preparation


Preheat oven to 375.

Brown the meat in a skillet and drain off fat (I use a collander).

Return the meat to the skillet; add the taco seasoning, water and black beans.

Mix and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until water is absorbed.

Spray 18 regular muffin pan cups with cooking spray.

Place one wonton wrapper in each muffin cup.

Divide half of the taco meat between muffin cups.

Sprinkle half of the cheese over the cupcakes.

Repeat layers - wonton, taco meat and cheese.

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.

Top with your favorite taco toppings(salsa, sour cream, lettuce, etc.)

Makes 18 cupcakes

Enjoy my friends! I hope they do not disappoint you!

This recipe sounds delicious! I really like it because it is taco's with a twist. Definitely on my menu plan now.

They really are good! I love to cook and I don't get too excited about many recipes but this one due to very few ingredients and how I don't have to mess with a taco shell breaking on me trying to eat it really puts it high on my list as a go to for a taste of Mexican food.....

Plus if you ever have a superbowl type party and have friends over, these will blow their mind!

To reheat them from the fridge, I usually put them in the microwave for 30 to 40 seconds. Not quite as crispy as coming out of the oven, but still pretty good!

I hope you enjoy them!

Those really look delicious.
About the meat and cheese, just so I understand.
If you are making 12, you are dividing up the meat and the cheese int 24 "doses", 2 for each cup..Is that right?
For layering.

Seems you could get really creative and flexible, with the ingredients too. Have you experimented with other fillings?

Gonna try these.

Yes! That is correct! You will put in one wonton wrapper then about a heaping Tablespoon of the mixture, then some cheese, rinse and repeat.

Don't be too shy on putting too much meat in because you can push it down when placing the second wrapper over top.

Ohhh those look good!

I would definitely try these. I love making my own tacos so this would be a nice new way to have them.
