These Mini Taco Wonton Appetizers are the perfect recipe for game day or tailgating. A quick and easy throw together with layers of refried beans, chorizo, and shredded cheese.


  • 1 lb Spicy Chorizo, bulk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 medium Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 24 Wonton Wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil, for brushing
  • 1/41/3 cup Refried Beans
  • 1 1/2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Sour Cream, optional
  • Jalapeños, thinly sliced, optional
  • Cherry Tomatoes, quartered, optional
  • Additional Toppings – Guacamole and Salsa


  • Preheat the Oven to 350°F. In a large skillet over medium-high heat add the spicy chorizo and sprinkle with salt, fry until browned.  Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Drain grease from the skillet, leaving about 1-2 tablespoons. Add the onions to the skillet and sauté until tender and translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add the chorizo back into the skillet with the onions and remove from heat.
  • Brush both sides of the wontons (one at a time) and gently press each one into the mini muffin tins.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of refried beans to the bottom of the wonton cup. Add a heaping tablespoon of the chorizo/onion mixture.
  • Place the muffin tin in the 350°F oven and cook for 10-13 minutes until the edges of the wontons are nice and brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle shredded cheese on top of each taco cup.
  • Remove the taco cups from the muffin tins to a serving platter, otherwise, they will become soggy on the bottom.
  • Top with a dollop of sour cream, jalapeño slice and quartered cherry tomato (optional). Serve with additional guacamole and salsa on the side, per your preference.
