WONTON TACO CUPS

Today’s recipe is a fun one!

I am partnering with Produce For Kids to talk about their Power Your Lunchbox Pledge and share this healthy and delicious recipe that the kids are going to love. These Wonton Taco Cups are a great addition to your kid’s lunchbox, an after-school snack or dinner.

I even think these would make a great appetizer for a party or game day. For these Wonton Taco Cups I used ground beef but you could use ground turkey as well or even ground sausage. Top the Wonton Taco Cups with  your favorite Mexican toppings–avocados, cheese, tomatoes, sour cream and cilantro work nicely.

These were a huge hit with my family and are even a nice change to your taco night.
