Chicken Taco Cups

Whether you are looking for an appetizer, a quick dinner, or just a different way to enjoy the taste of tacos, Chicken Taco Cups are a great option. I love how easy they are to make and everyone can top theirs just the way they want.

Chicken Taco Cups
(makes 24 cups)

1/2 pkg wonton wrappers (the brand I use has 48 in a package)
1/2 cup shredded cheese
8 oz chicken, shredded

taco toppers

Place your wonton wrappers into a mini muffin pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray, folding to form a cup.
Bake at 350 for about 5 minutes.

Combine your shredded chicken and cheese in a small bowl and mix together.

Fill your cups with the mixture, dividing equally between the cups.

Bake for another 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the filling heated through.

Serve with chopped tomatoes, lettuce, onions, sour cream and all of your favorite taco toppings.

I used the shredded chicken that I make up for chicken tacos, so it was preseasoned. Alternately, you could use cooked chicken and chop it up into small pieces - if so, I would add taco seasoning. The recipe would also work with ground meat or beans, if you want a vegetarian option. If your filling meat is pre-cooked, this meal can be ready to eat in about 15 minutes - perfect for those busy sports filled nights.

These were a hit with the family and next time, I will make up a second pan by doubling my filling recipe.
