Taco Cupcakes

We are BIG taco fans! Regular tacos, taco salads, nacho's (yea! thats right, same thing!)...Taco Cupcakes?? Umm....YES, PLEASE!!!
I saw this recipe and HAD to try!  It was DELISH!!  Great for parties or large gatherings.

1 lb 95% lean ground beef
1 pkg taco seasoning
1canned black beans, drained and rinsed
16 wonton wrappers
queso dip or salsa con queso
1 cup chunky salsa
1 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese
Guacamole/Sour Cream for serving

First, pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.

Heat the ground beef and taco seasoning and brown beef, breaking it with a spoon. Add black beans and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until warm.
Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the eight sprayed cups in the muffin tin. Spoon a teaspoon of queso dip into each wonton wrapper and spread across the bottom.

Follow by spooning some of the meat/beans mixture into each cup (I would say about two teaspoons) and then spooning a teaspoon or so of salsa on top of that. Sprinkle a pinch of the cheese evenly over the top of each cup.

Now do it all again, one more time!
Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining ingredients.
Just press around the edges, as if you are putting on the top of a pie.
Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin
