Super Bowl Appetizer: Wonton Taco Bites








With the NFL wild card round games in the books, it’s just about time to start preparing for a Super Bowl party! As some of you may know, we are lifelong and die-hard Steelers fans. The last time the Steelers were in the Super Bowl {2011 against Green Bay} I missed at least half of the game and was not too happy about it! At the time, I was in a small apartment, with an even smaller kitchen, trying to get appetizers out of the oven and onto the table and lost complete track of time. Whether the small workspace or the complicated recipes I chose were to blame, I’ve definitely learned my lesson: quick, simple, and/or make-ahead recipes are always best, especially when you want to actually watch the game! Regardless of whether the Steelers make it to the Super Bowl this year, I will be sure to not miss the game with this quick and tasty recipe!

As with so many of my dishes, I love using flexible ingredients that allow you to customize with what you like best. There are so many possibilities when it comes to toppings for these taco bites — basically whatever you like in your burrito or on your taco will work!  


Wonton Taco Bites

{what you will need}
24 wonton wrappers
1 pound lean ground beef, cooked & drained
1 package taco seasoning {I used low sodium}
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
1/2 cup pico de gallo
1/3 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup guacamole

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until no longer pink; drain. Add the taco seasoning and water to the ground beef and stir until fully cooked; set aside. Meanwhile, place the wonton wrappers in a mini cupcake tin and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and add about 1 tablespoon of the ground beef to each wonton wrapper and top with 1-2 teaspoons of cheese {depending on how much cheese you like!}. Place the taco bites back in the oven and cook for an additional 10 minutes, or just until the wrappers begin to become golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Top the taco bites with pico de gallo, shredded lettuce, guacamole and any other toppings you desire. Serve and enjoy!

What are your plans for the big game? After watching the Steelers in a public place on Saturday, I realized it’s probably better for us to watch the rest of their games from our house. I get way too crazy to be seen in public haha! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Tuesday!
