I love creative and different appetizers. Here's one that is super easy and can easily be vegetarian or made with meat. I made this last night for a ladies night dinner party at my friend Suzanne's. Thanks Suzanne!
Recipe: Mini Taco Cups
24 won ton wrappers
1/2 lb ground meat (I used elk)
1/2 can low fat re-fried beans
1/2 package taco seasoning
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup shredded cheese, of your choice (I used Mexican blend)
1/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Cook meat in a medium pan until well browned. Add taco seasoning and water. Mix.
Add re-fried beans to meat and mix well, set aside.
Take your won ton wrappers and place them into an ungreased mini muffin pan. Fold each wrapper gently so it makes a cup inside each mini muffin cup.
Place 1/2-1 Tbsp. of meat mixture into the bottom of each won ton wrapper. Top each cup with a pinch of shredded cheese and a small drop of salsa.
Place in oven and bake on middle rack for approximately 8 minutes or until edges of won tons are golden brown.
Meanwhile, place 1/2 an avocado into a small zip-lock bag. Use your had to smash it. Once smashed add sour cream to the bag. Again mix with your had by smashing. Once it is well mixed, cut a small hole in one of the bottom corners of the bag.
Squeeze a small dollop of avocado mixture onto each taco cup.
Next place a sprinkle of chopped cilantro on each taco cup.
Makes 24 appetizers.
