Mini Tacos

I wanted to make something a little special for the kids on New Year's Eve before we headed out for a night out with our friends and they have been loving tacos lately so this was the perfect fit! The bottoms ended up a little greasy from the taco meat, but they were still fabulous and we ended up not having enough for everyone to have as many as they wanted!! The kids loved having the "finger food" aspect and being able to put all their own toppings on, just like a regular taco! These would make wonderful appetizers also, even though we had them for supper!

24 wonton wrappers
1 pound ground beef
2 packet taco seasoning mix
2 tablespoons picante sauce
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup mexican blend cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Press wonton wrappers into mini-muffin cups. Cook beef in skillet until browned. Drain off fat. Stir in taco seasoning mix and picante sauce. Spoon beef mixture into wonton cups. Top with salsa and cheese. Bake about 8 minutes or until wontons are golden brown. Serve immediately with additional salsa. Garnish with sour cream and sliced ripe olives if desired.
