Taco Cups

It's almost game time!! Are you still looking for something to take to a Super Bowl party this weekend? This recipe is great because you can assemble them the day before and bake them up onsite. We had this for a fast mid-week meal paired with a salad and some Spanish rice. 

Taco Cups
Recipe adapted from Plain Chicken 

1 lb lean ground beef 
1 packet taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
1 can black beans, drained

1 small can of corn, drained
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
48 wonton wrappers

Optional Toppings: sour cream, taco sauce or salsa.

DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain grease. Stir in taco seasoning, water, black beans and corn. Bring mixture to a boil, and then reduce heat to low. Let simmer for 10 minutes or until water is absorbed.

Spray 24 regular muffin cups with cooking spray. Place one wonton wrapper in each muffin cup. Divide half of the meat mixture between muffin cups, about a tablespoon in each cup. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the meat. Repeat layers with another wonton wrapper, taco meat and cheese. 

Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and wrappers are golden brown. Serve with your favorite taco toppings.
