Well, fall is just around the corner… and you know what fall means?
No, not apples and cinnamon. Not pumpkin pie. Not hot apple cider, Halloween, or falling leaves.
In our household, fall = football. And football = Minnesota Vikings. Brian is a die-hard Vikings fan (Skol Vikings!), so during football season, weekend plans around our house usually revolves around when the Vikings play.
And we all know the best part of watching football is the game food that goes with it. Half the time when I’m watching the game, I’m more interested in what I’m eating or what I’m eating next. That’s why this football season, I’m going to try to make an effort to make some simple finger foods/game day foods on Sundays, so be sure to check back every so often this football season! That way you’ll have ideas on what to make next time when it’s your turn to host football Sunday – I’m sure your guests will be impressed!
Even though it’s only preseason doesn’t mean you can’t have yummy game day foods! Let’s start the season out right with some super easy mini taco cups – they’re small, bite-sized, transportable, delicious, and toppings are optional (but highly recommended).
And who doesn’t like tacos anyway? These are your everyday tacos shrunk into a small miniature size. They might be tiny, but they sure don’t lack in flavor!
You use wonton wrappers, place them into mini muffin tin wells and shape them into a cup. Spoon taco meat mixture into cup and top with shredded cheese.
Bake for 8 minutes, and wa-la! Happiness in a bite.
If you want, you can even have a variety of topping choices on the sides for people to dress up their taco cups – tomatoes, green onions, diced onions, sour cream….
- One 12-oz package of wonton wrappers
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 package 40% less sodium taco seasoning
- 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (you probably won't use all of it)
- A variety of toppings (tomatoes, onions, green onions, sour cream, etc), if desired
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Brown the ground turkey in a large skillet. Drain the fat, and then season the meat with the taco seasoning according to package directions.
- Using a mini muffin tin, line the wells with wonton wrappers, so the wrappers are shaped into little cups inside the wells. Spoon the taco meat into each cup, about 1/2-2/3 full. Sprinkle the tops with cheese.
- Bake for 8 minutes, or until wrappers are slightly turning brown.
- Serve with additional toppings, if desired.
- Makes about 30 cups
