Won Ton Tacos

In the spirit of fusion cuisine, we found these and tried them for dinner. They are so good. Plus, ask Stacy how she feels about "fun" food. An instant classic. You can modify them so many ways, too. --Mark


24 wonton wrappers
1 pound lean ground beef
1 (1.12 ounce) package Pace® Dry Taco Seasoning Mix
2 T Pace® Picante Sauce
1/2 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Press wonton wrappers into mini-muffin cups.

Cook beef in skillet until browned. Drain off fat. Stir in taco seasoning mix and picante sauce.
Spoon beef mixture into wonton cups. Top with salsa and cheese.

Bake about 8 minutes or until wontons are golden brown.

Serve immediately with additional salsa. Garnish with sour cream and sliced ripe olives if desired. Makes 24 appetizers.


You can experiment, but we actually bake ours at around 350 degrees and they turn out well. Recently we did them with beans for a vegetarian appetizer. Once for our bookclub I made them with capicola ham and artichoke hearts, topped with mozarella cheese. Also, yum.
