Taco Bites

Pin It


I made these easy and so yummy taco bites last Christmas. It is budget friendly specially if you will use some homemade staples . Instead of using canned black beans , you can buy a bag of beans and cook it at home. A bag of beans can yield up to 5-6 cups. I am making this again for Superbowl :)

And for the recipe..
Ingredients:

1 package of wonton wrappers
1 lb of ground turkey
A package of taco seasoning or use  Homemade Taco Seasoning
1 can of black beans or use Homecooked Pantry Staples - Beans 
1 -2 cups shredded cheese
cooking spray
As for the toppings you can use : tomato , shredded lettuce , black olives , cilantro , hot sauce , green onions.

I served the toppings buffet style as well..


Directions:

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Coat a non stick muffin tin with your cooking spray. Gently press , one wonton wrapper on each of the muffin tin.

Heat pan and Brown your ground turkey. Drain and put the browned ground turkey back to a pan. mix the taco seasoning , adding half a cup of water. Let it cook for a few.

Roughly chop the beans and add it to the seasoned  ground turkey . 

Fill every cup of wonton wrapper with 1 tablespoon of the ground turkey mixture .

Sprinkle cheese on top.



Bake for 7-8 minutes.

A lot of yumminess on those bites!
