Total time: 
Serves: 5-6
  • 1 lb of Zaycon Foods Ground Beef
  • 1 Can of Low-fat Re-fried beans
  • 1 Packet of Taco Seasoning
  • ¼ Cup of Water
  • 32 Square Wonton Wrappers
  • 1 Can of Black Beans
  • 1½ Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Taco toppings of your choice such as green onions, salsa, tomatoes, lettuce
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Start by browning your Zaycon Foods Ground beef in a large skillet.
  3. While that cooks, prep your muffin tins. Spray non-stick spray into each cup and layer 2 wonton wrappers in each one to mostly cover the cup. Make sure to press them in slightly.
  4. When the beef is browned, add a can of re-fried beans to the skillet and mix well to form a kind of paste.
  5. Drain the black beans and rinse in a strainer to get rid of the starch on them.
  6. Open your packet of taco seasoning and sprinkle on top of the bean/beef mix. Add a ¼ cup of water to it and stir well.
  7. Using heaping tablespoons, fill each cup with the mixture. Top with black beans and then cheese and place in the oven.
  8. Watch them closely as they really do cook very fast. It shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes in the oven. They are done when the edges of the wonton wrappers are brown and the cheese is melted.
  9. Remove from muffin pan with a fork and top with sour cream and your favorite toppings.
