Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef or sirloin
  • 1 package (1 ounce) Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
  • 1 (10 ounce) can tomatoes, drained
  • 1 package (48) wonton wrappers
  • 2 cups shredded Chihuahua cheese (or Mexican blend cheese)
  • Canola Oil
  • Sour Cream and Cilantro for dipping

Instructions

  1. In a skillet, brown your meat, crumbling as it cooks.
  2. Add the taco seasoning and tomatoes and stir to combine. Turn off heat and set aside.
  3. To assemble wontons, spoon a small amount of beef mixture into the middle of each wonton. Sprinkle with cheese. Using a finger dipped in water, trace the outside of each wonton wrapper. Fold over the wrapper to conceal the filling and press firmly along the edges to seal the wonton. The water will act as "glue", so press firmly. Place finished wontons on a plate or cookie sheet.
  4. Pour about 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 inches oil into a large pot or dutch oven. Heat on medium/high heat until the oil reaches 375F.
  5. Working in batches or 3-5, place the filled wontons into the oil, turning as they fry. It took mine about 2-3 minutes to be fried to my liking. You want them browned on both sides but not charred.
  6. Remove carefully from the oil and place on a paper towel to dry/drain.
  7. Serve warm with sour cream and cilantro for dipping.
  8. Enjoy!

Erin @ The Almond Eater
These are brilliant! And you're right--so many holiday parties coming up so soon-I should probably start making my 'to do/to make' list ASAP.

Maryanne @ the little epicurean
YES. I am ready for party appetizer season... although my skinny jeans probably will hate me by the end of the year. This is such a great idea. Taco pizza? DELICIOUS :)

I used to make wonton tacos as appetizers years ago. I had forgotten all about them, so I'm glad you reminded me. These look like they are made with egg roll wrappers, though. Wontons are square and make triangular packets.

    Hi! They are wonton wrappers I just folded the squares in half and it created the rectangles. I bet egg roll wrappers would be delicious too!!
      LakeladyP
      Gotcha! It's hard to judge sizes, and I thought they looked bigger than that. Either shape, they sound great and I will be using this recipe.
        Becky Hardin
        Yes definitely hard to judge! They're more mini in person for sure :) I hope you love them! I truly appreciate you stopping by!
Kristyn
