Mexican Lasagna Cupcakes

I saw these and I knew I had to make them. They are just so cute.
We ate these for dinner one night but I have a feeling these are more of an appetizer type thing. Either way it filled me and my husband right up after about 3 each. We loved them!
Next time I think I am going to try and make it with black beans and maybe some corn.
I love me some corn!

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (1.25 ounce) package of taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 36 wonton wrappers
  • 1 (16 ounce) can of refried beans
  • 36 tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • optional toppings: sour cream, diced tomatoes, cilantro, salsa
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 18 muffin cups with cooking spray.

Brown beef in a skillet and drain the fat. Add the taco seasoning mix, the water called for on the package, as well as the red onion. Simmer for 4-5 minutes. Set aside.

Place one wonton wrapper in the bottom of each muffin cup. Layer about 1 Tbsp of refried beans on top of each wonton. Crush one tortilla chip on top of the beans. Top with 1 Tbsp of taco meat and 1 Tbsp of shredded cheese. Repeat the layers again with a wonton wrapper, refried beans, tortilla chips, taco meat, and cheese.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove cupcakes from tin and top with your favorite taco toppings (i.e. sour cream, salsa, diced tomatoes, or cilantro)
