Skip the usual taco shell and opt for square wonton wrappers from the grocery store instead. It creates a cheesy crunchy wonton cup appetizer or meal that’s unique looking and fun to eat. The best part is you can garnish your taco wontons with all the taco-related toppings your family enjoys such as sour cream, olives, and chives.

More tips for making the best crunchy wonton taco cups:

  • Be sure to prep your muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. I actually have and love a Caraway muffin pan. With this bakeware, you don’t need any spray or greasing, as the food slides right out.
  • The wonton wrappers are usually located in the refrigerator section by the yogurt. or in the produce department.
  • Use this for food prep for the week! These little portable tacos are great reheated. They can be baked and then stored in a container with a lid for up to five days. Try reheating in the air fryer to keep the wonton wrapper crispy.

These taco wonton cups will disappear fast!

Consider doubling the recipe for a larger crowd, because these are so popular. It’s a fun and unique way of jazzing up taco night. I cannot wait to make buffalo chicken wonton cups as another variation soon. I think leftover bbq pork would be yummy too.
