Inspired by Alton Brown after seeing his wonton-themed show, these are great as appetizers or as a meal. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Brown ground meat, adding onion, pepper, and garlic about halfway through the browning process.
  3. Add taco seasoning, cumin, salsa, and a small amount or water (1/3 cup or less) when meat has browned and allow to simmer over medium heat until mixture is dry.
  4. Remove meat from heat.
  5. Lay 4-6 wonton wrappers out and place one pinch of cheese and one level spoonful of meat mixture in each wrapper.
  6. Use your finger to wet 2 sides of the wrapper and fold into a triangle or rectangle shape (the shape doesn't matter- it's up to you!).
  8. Place filled wontons onto greased baking sheet or jelly roll.
  9. Repeat filling until out of meat mixture.
  10. Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven, sprinkle cheese over top, and replace in oven for additional 5 minutes or until cheese has melted and wontons are crisp on the edges.
  12. ENJOY! (I top mine with hot sauce and dip in sour cream and salsa like a nacho).

These were a hit at my Super Bowl party. I actually trippled the recipe to use a whole package of meat. So much fun and very tasty!

I've been making something like this for a while now, but like BeccaB, I just put the won ton wrappers in the mini muffin tin. My DD almost likes them better than regular tacos! I serve them at parties and they are always a hit. I use a pound of ground beef and get about 50 -55 appetizers. I use chicken sometimes, too and that is also really good. It is amazing the things you can do with a won ton wrapper :-D Thanks for posting!

Great recipe. I was unable to buy wonton wrappers so I used spring roll wrappers and they worked just fine.
