Taco Wonton Cups

I love making wonton cups for parties! It’s a great way to serve an appetizer that is loaded with flavor, but it bite-sized portions that can easily be grabbed. One of my favorite versions of a wonton cup are these taco ones that are loaded with taco seasoned meat and cheese and topped with all of your favorite fixings.

I suggest assembling and eating these taco cups immediately so that you get the maximum crispness in the wonton cups. If you have to prep ahead of time, just keep the beef and topping separate from the wonton cups. Warm the beef, fill them up, and serve.
