I am giving this 5 stars for the concept and the taste. I did these for a fun diner tonight but did 'play' with them a bit. I only had half the meat I needed and I didn't have any salsa in the house. So, I chopped up half an onion and half a red pepper and did them in with the beef and taco mixture. I did pre-bake the wontons for a couple minutes and then to stretch out the beef mixture and to give me peace of mind that the mixture wouldn't make the base too soggy I spooned a bit of re-fried beans straight from the can into the bottom of the cups. I them put the beef on top of that and then the cheese. That worked out great and the bottoms didn't feel soggy at all.
Big hit with my guests! I did wind up with an extra twelve - but that's better than ok! I followed the suggestions and pre-baked the won tons and also sprayed them with non-stick spray - inside the cup and the unfilled won ton. I made them up early in the day and then finished them in the oven when my guests arrived. Also, I just put the ground beef and cheese and baked them - people topped them with salsa as they ate them.
These are simply delicious. I served them for a ladies night catering job and they were a big hit. Served with some sour cream and the ladies were fighting over them. Thanks. I could see using different ingredients to change them up some next time. A little green onion on top make for a nice garnish.
I came across this recipe and realized I'd made it a few years ago and didn't post a review, and it is definitely worthy of one! These were great! I did bake the wontons in the mini muffin pan for a few minutes before filling. I liked them crisped up. Thanks for sharing!
Served at my monthly dinner party club last night and these are fantastic. Thank you so much for posting.
Made these yesterday. I had no trouble getting the wontons in muffin tins. Just kinda brought the four corners together,stuck them in the tins and then opened them back up.I too, baked mine for a few minutes before I put the filling in. What a great little appetizer(or lunch for kids)My DS(9) ate about 10 of them!! I will definitely make again!!!
Tasted like tacos. Next time gonna try to deep fry to get the wonton wrappers more crunchy.
These were ok. They were a lot of work for what you get. I'm giving it 4 stars because my BF wolfed them down and kept raving about them. It's a very clever idea. We will most likely use the idea for other fillings.
These were great and went over well with guests. Ours never got really crispy on the bottom, but they were tasty!
I used WonTon skins and didn't have to cut but have also used egg roll wrappers. I precook the shells, as suggested, and make sure corners don't fold into tin (they like to flop in). I prefer the taco meat from #55575 (less messy and salty). Thanks for a successful party appetizer.
