Recipe #241: Mini Tacos

I don't normally cook cutesy, modular things, but these caught my attention.  They're very quick to put together and are fun to eat.  They could be easily modified, too, with olives, chopped up jalapenos, or whatever else sounds good to you.  I found this on  I had two changes.  First, I didn't use mini muffin pans because, well, I don't have them.  Regular size worked fine, as you can see.  Second, I cooked the wontons by themselves for about 3 minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients and cooking for another 5.

24 wonton wrappers
1 pound lean ground beef
1 (1.12 ounce) package Pace® Dry
Taco Seasoning Mix
2 tablespoons Pace® Picante Sauce
1/2 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
2.Press wonton wrappers into mini-muffin cups.
3.Cook beef in skillet until browned. Drain off fat. Stir in taco seasoning mix and picante sauce.
4.Spoon beef mixture into wonton cups. Top with salsa and cheese.
5.Bake about 8 minutes or until wontons are golden brown.
6.Serve immediately with additional salsa. Garnish with sour cream and sliced ripe olives if desired. Makes 24 appetizers.
