For the Taco Filling:

  • 1 lb ground beef 🥩
  • 1 packet taco seasoning 🌮
  • 1/2 cup water 💧

For the Cupcakes:

  • 24 wonton wrappers 🥟
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 🧀
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese 🧀
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes 🍅
  • 1/2 cup shredded lettuce 🥬
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives 🍈
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions 🧅
  • Sour cream and salsa for topping 🥄


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin.
  2. Cook the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. Drain any excess fat. Add the taco seasoning and water, and simmer until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat.
  3. Assemble the cupcakes: Place a wonton wrapper into each muffin cup, pressing it into the bottom and up the sides. Add a tablespoon of the seasoned ground beef into each cup, then sprinkle with cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese.
  4. Repeat the layers: Add another wonton wrapper on top of each cup, pressing down gently. Repeat the layering process with the remaining beef and cheese.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the wonton wrappers are golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Cool slightly: Remove the taco cupcakes from the oven and let them cool slightly in the pan before transferring them to a serving platter.
  7. Add toppings: Top each taco cupcake with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, black olives, and green onions. Add a dollop of sour cream and a spoonful of salsa on top of each for the perfect finishing touch.

Serve these Taco Cupcakes warm, and enjoy the playful yet delicious take on traditional tacos!
