    I added black beans and changed the beef to a veggie crumble. Delicious!

    Amazing! I have a ton of food allergies so I seasoned the beef with shallots, garlic, and Ms Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning. I can't eat tomatoes either, so I used a small can of green chilies instead of Rotel. It was so good!

    They were good, but I think I will cut the wonton shells down before assembling them, too much on the edges

    Probably would have been better if I used metal muffin pan. But the taste was great! Will definitely fix them again when I get a metal tin.

    These were delicious! I didn’t realize until I had the meat prepared that I don’t own a cupcake tin of normal size, only a mini one. So I only did one layer and they turned out great!

    I made these and they were delicious!! I omitted the Rotel and added sauteed onions instead. I also added some ranch dressing to the meat mixture.

    These are seriously delicious. I used torillas for the shells and added sour cream and extra cheese. I only did one layer of tortilla shells then put cheese on the bottom to soak up any grease- then a layer of the taco mixture, then another layer of cheese, another layer of taco mixture, then a final layer of cheese. The taco cups come out hot and perfectly crispy. Amazing!!

    Delicious! I substituted venison for the beef but followed the recipe otherwise.I would add onion to the recipe next time but overall Delicious. This recipe was easy to make and I like using wontons. My husband and I loved it and I will make it again.

    Easy, delicious, and portable. Made it with grinding my own meat from eye of round so had to add oil to actually brown the meat, also just chopped my own tomatoes and chilies instead of using canned. Turned out pretty delicious especially since I cooked it on a wok. But I think the cheese is too much and makes the whole thing feel heavy, I'll probably top it off with fresh salsa after its cooked to give it some balance and take out the cheese. Overall quick and easy.

    These turned out amazing!! They were such a hit at the bbq party and everyone loved them. Only thing is that they were a little soggy on the bottom when pulling out of the tin. May be best for them to rest for a while before serving.

    Great recipe. Everyone loved them. Used 2 wrappers on bottom instead of layering.

    They turned out great!! I actually made the dough myself and spiced it up and I mixed the hamburger meat completely with taco seasoning. It was delicious!

    These were alright. Not the best thing I made this year, but I still liked them. They were at least a 7/10. Not terrible.
    Very good my kids liked it
