- quick recipe of the week -


It's that day again....Monday...when it all starts over again! We had a good weekend...picked out our pumpkins and spent some quality time with some good friends. All in all, a great weekend!

Today I am sharing another Pinterest recipe I found. It's a great, kid friendly recipe. And they are super easy to make!

Taco Bites
1.5 tsp chili oil (regular olive oil works too)
1/2 lb ground turkey, beef, or chicken
1 Tbs taco seasoning
3/4 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)
16 wonton wrappers
5 Tbs of queso dip
1 cup chunky salsa
1 cup Mexican shredded cheese

Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 8 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. Heat chili oil (or Olive oil) in a saute pan or large skillet over medium-high heat, add the ground beef and taco seasoning and brown beef, breaking it with a spoon. Add black beans and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until warm. Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the eight sprayed cups in the  muffin tin. Spoon a teaspoon of queso dip into each wonton wrapper and spread across the bottom.Follow by spooning some of the meat/beans mixture into each cup and then spooning a teaspoon or so of salsa on top of that. Sprinkle a pinch of the cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.

I've seen these too, and I think I pinned them but have yet to make them. Yours turned out so good and I'm sure they tasted great. I see a lot of cheesy goodness!!
