Taco Wonton Cups

Taco Wonton Cups

 

1 pkg. Taco Seasoning & Dip Mix, divided

1 lb. ground beef

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ c. salsa

¾ c. shredded cheese, divided

1 pkg. wonton wrappers

black olive slices or jalapeno slices

1/3 c. sour cream

Mix together the hamburger, baking soda, and 1 T. of the dip mix in a small bowl and set aside for 20 minutes. Brown hamburger in a small skillet until cooked through and drain any excess grease. Allow to cool thoroughly and stir in the salsa and ½ c. of the cheese. Put a wonton wrapper into each well of a mini muffin tin. Bake in a preheated 350º oven for about 3 minutes. Fill each cup with a spoonful of the meat mixture and add a little sprinkle of cheese to the top of each one and an olive or jalapeno slice for garnish. Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until golden. (Lay a piece of foil over the top for the first 5 minutes so they don’t gettoo dark.) Mix together the sour cream and the remaining dip mix and put a little dollop on the top of each wonton cup.
