- Method: Cooking
- Cuisine: Mexican
- 1 lb Spicy Chorizo, bulk
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1 medium Sweet Onion, chopped
- 24 Wonton Wrappers
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil, for brushing
- 1/4- 1/3 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.
