Taco Cups

Donna Brown


My daughter shared this recipe with me and it is so good, either as a meal, an accompanyment to a meal or as a great little appetizer. It all depends upon the size muffin pan you choose to use in the preparation.

How to Make Taco Cups


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Spray desired size muffin pan lightly with cooking spray. (You can make up to about 2 dozen medium size muffins cups with the 1 pound of meat).
  2. Add ground meat and onions to sautè pan and cook ground meat until no longer pink and onions are tender. Add salsa to meat and onions, stir to mix well. Add taco seasoning packet or your homemade seasonings. Add black beans and heat mixture thorougly.
  3. Place 1 won ton wrapper in a muffin cup, pushing won ton down into the muffin cup, then add another won ton wrapper turning this one a bit (by turning the 2nd one a bit makes a pretty presentation) and then push this one into the muffin cup as well, add enough cheese to cover bottom of wrapper, about a tablespoon or so, placing some cheese on bottom makes a big difference in your finished product. Add desired amount of meat mixture on top of cheese. Top with more cheese. Continue filling muffin cups in this manner. Cook about 10 - 15 minutes until won tons are browned and cheese is melted. Remove from muffin cups to serving plate and top with desired toppings.
