Last week on American Idol the contestants sang songs they wish they’d written. So for Lyndsey Parker’s Reality Rocks blog I was cooking up recipes I wish I would have thought of first!
These turned out soooo delicious and they were super easy to put together. I added some onion, garlic, tomatoes and green onions to the recipe to make them feel more like a taco. Won ton wrappers are so versatile and can be filled with just about anything. So give this recipe a try!
Mini Taco Cups
Recipe Adapted From: All Recipes
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
- 2 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1 pound lean ground sirloin
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning
- 3 tbsp salsa
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
- 24 wonton wrappers
- sour cream
- 2 tbsp green onions, chopped
- 1 tomato, chopped
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven over medium high heat. Sauté onions until softened. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, around 30 seconds.
Add the beef and sauté until no longer pink. Stir in taco seasoning and 3 tablespoons of salsa.
Press wonton wrappers into mini-muffin cups, two per cup. Spoon beef mixture into wonton cups.
Top with salsa and cheese. Bake about 8 minutes or until wontons are deep golden brown.
Garnish with sour cream, green onions and tomato.
