DIRECTIONS

  • Saute onion and garlic in oil until browned.
  • Stir in taco mix, corn, beans, and kale or other greens, and salsa/picante sauce.
  • Simmer for 3-5 minutes, until flavors are mixed. This mixture can be prepared ahead and cooled and refrigerated at this point, if appetizers are not needed today.
  • Preheat oven to 420.
  • Press wonton wrappers into mini muffin cups.
  • Spoon veggie mixture in cups and top with the cheese, evenly divided.
  • Bake in preheated 420°F oven for 8 minutes, or until the wontons are nicely browned.
  • Place cilantro leaf in each cup, on top of melted cheese.
  • Serve hot with extra salsa, sour cream, olives and guacamole if desired.
