Beef Taco Cups

Happy Cinco de Mayo! And happy birthday, Dad!

Today I’m celebrating with these cute little beef taco cups.  These would make a great appetizer for a party or you can eat them as an entrée for dinner.

I used wonton wrappers for the shell because they’re easy to work with and they fit perfectly in a muffin tin.  You can typically find the wonton wrappers in the tofu section at your local grocery store. And then I layered refried beans, seasoned beef, and cheese. Yum!

After baking them, I added my favorite toppings – cilantro, onion, tomato, and sour cream! Just like a regular taco, you can customize them any which way you please.

Beef Taco Cups
Yield: Makes about 24 appetizer cups

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 36 wonton wrappers
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  • 2 cups shredded cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Brown beef in skillet; drain the fat. Add the taco seasoning mix and water, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Place one wonton wrapper in the bottom of each muffin cup.
  4. Layer 1 Tablespoon of refried beans on top of each wonton. Top with 1 Tablespoon of beef and 1 Tablespoon of shredded cheese.
  5. Layer a wonton wrapper on top of the shredded cheese and add another layer of beef and cheese.
  6. Bake for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove from tin and top with your favorite taco toppings (i.e. sour cream, diced tomatoes, onion, or cilantro).
