Wonton Taco Cups

We're all big fans of tacos so I knew this recipe would be a hit! My friend Shannon mentioned these when I was staying at her house a couple weeks ago with some other friends before a 5K in Philly in honor of Dan.
 
This was a quick and easy recipe and would be fun to have a party. The cups can be made and then each person can top them how they like. We'll definitely be making these more often than regular tacos - plus they are much easier to send to school for leftovers for Madeline. 
 

3/4 lb lean ground beef
1 can black beans (I used light kidney beans since that's what I had on hand)
1 packet taco seasoning
wonton wrappers
shredded Monterrey jack cheese
toppings - sour cream, lettuce, salsa, tomatoes, black olives - anything you'd like

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown beef and drain any grease. Mix the taco seasonings into the cooked beef as directed on the package. Add the beans and stir to combine.

Spray the cups of a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Line each cup with two wonton wrappers. Add one scoop of taco/bean mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top of each cup. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and wontons are crispy and golden brown.

Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
