Won Ton Taco Bites

Won Tons seem to be the new rage in appetizer creations. The options are endless for what they can be filled with. I had small amounts of stuff left over from a taco night and made these to serve as a side to a southwest chowder. I really don't think these even warrant a firm recipe. Use this recipe as a guide to make your own version.

12 servings

12 won ton wrappers
taco meat
green onions, chopped
cooked black beans
frozen corn
green pepper, diced
salsa of your choosing
shredded cheese. I used monterray jack for this version
roma tomatoes, sliced
black pepper
non stick spray

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. While the oven is heating up you can spray your muffin tin and press one won ton wrapper into each cup.

Now you can layer your ingredients into the cups. I started with a layer of cheese, then added the meat, beans, and corn. I added a spoonful of salsa over each one and packed the ingredients down with the a spoon. Then I sprinkled each cup with the chopped green onions and green pepper. I added another layer of cheese and then topped each one with a slice of tomato and a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper.

Bake for 12 minutes or until the edges of the won tons are golden. Remove from oven and let sit about 10 minutes, serve warm.
