Taco Cups



Tonight is the last night in our house.  The movers come tomorrow to load up everything, and then we are on our way to Colorado.  My son’s teacher is throwing him a going away party at school today.  He is very excited for that, but he really is going to miss all of his friends and his teacher.  He is such a sensitive little boy, I feel bad for him today.  It is sad to leave everyone, but what is to come is so exciting.  Unfortunately, at age 6 you just don’t understand that.  He is very excited to get to see Daddy again, and for the separation to be over.  That part has been harder on him than I ever thought it would be. 

In my mission to clean out my kitchen I came up with these little Taco Cups.  I had leftover Wonton Wrappers and Taco Meat.  I thought the Wontons would make a great “shell”.  They didn’t get as crispy as I would have liked, but I think my impatience was the problem there.  There isn’t really a recipe here, so I will just tell you what I did.

I filled muffin tins with 2 wonton wrappers each.  I laid them at angles, so all of the sides were covered.  Spray with nonstick spray, and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.  You have to watch them, so they don’t burn.  Fill with whatever toppings you want!  I picked Taco Meat, Cheese, Guacamole, and Tomatoes.  I mixed the warm taco meat and the cheese together, so the cheese was nice and melted.  You could add in black beans, corn, salsa, black olives...the possibilities are endless!  This made for a quick lunch, so I could get back to packing! 

This would make a fun appetizer for a party too!  You could set up a little “bar” and everyone could pick their own toppings.  I love serving fun, finger foods at parties.  It always seems like everyone has more fun!

I hope you enjoy Colorado as much as I did, I lived in Pagosa Springs area (SW corner-Wolf Creek Pass) for about 6 yrs, the economy really forced my move back home. I miss the majestic peaks but not the high altitude baking problems, LOL!! Best of the Best in this new adventure!! Thanks for all the recipes and posts!!! Really enjoy your blog!!

Great idea! They look like yummy taco bites, I don't think I'm ever not in the mood for tacos in any form. Good luck on the big move!! From experience I moved at age 6 also, it was tough at first I was pretty shy but that didn't last long. In all it was a really great thing. :)

Enjoy the last night in your home and good luck with the move. Congratulations! Also, I have no doubt your son is sad, but he's going to do just great. We made a big move when my son was five. He had a tough few days and now, he couldn't be happier! And I'm definitely going to make use of this taco idea. I love it!

Best of luck on the move tomorrow!! I hope everything goes as planned!! You amaze me that you're still cooking and posting with all that's going on. I've been sick for a few days and had to pull from my inventory of recipes that I keep for a rainy day. These taco cups look wonderful... great way to use wontons. I'm definitely trying this one. :)
