Pinterest WIN!: Mini Tacos with Wonton Wrappers

Oh, it's nice to finally find a far-fetched Pinterest idea that actually WORKS.

It doesn't make any sense: put Wonton wrappers in cupcake tins and make mini tacos? What?

But -- lo and behold! -- it works!

What you'll need:
Wonton wrappers (which, if the grocery store carries them, will be in the refrigerated section, usually alongside tofu)
Cupcake tins
1 lb of beef
Taco seasoning
Any other taco seasons you love

Prep time: 30 minutes \\ Makes 24 mini tacos

Preheat the oven to 425*F. Thoroughly cook your beef as you would for any taco meal. Drain the grease at regular intervals (aside from the fact that the grease is horrible for you and doesn't really add anything to the taste, you don't want greasy beef going into the wrappers). Add seasoning until the beef is how you like it.

While the beef is cooking, place one wonton wrapper into each cupcake tin. If you like a "soft taco" texture, I recommend putting two wonton wrappers in the cupcake tins.

Place about one spoonful of beef into each tin. If distributed correctly, you'll fill all 24 wonton wrappers about halfway up. Sprinkle with cheese and cook for 8 minutes (or until the edges are brown).

And then, top with whatever you like putting on your tacos. Sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro, guacamole. More cheese. These are absolutely incredible. This is one Pinterest experiment that I'm more than happy actually works.
