PREHEATING AND TACO FILLING PREP
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Cook the ground beef, drain any fat. Add the taco seasoning and water. Stir this well and set it aside.
Heat up the refried beans. Set these aside / preferably keep them warm.
Lightly olive oil the cupcake tins. This will make it easier to get the tacos out when they're done.
MAKING A SINGLE TACO
Take a single wonton wrapper and press it gently into a cupcake form, spreading it as evenly as possible. This will form the bottom taco shell.
Add approx 1tsp .. 1tbsp of ground beef and taco mix on top of the wrapper.
Add approx 1tsp .. 1tbsp of refried beans on top of the wrapper.
Break up a tortilla chip, add approx 1/2 of the pieces. This is to give the taco a bit of crunch when you bite into it.
Add a pinch of shredded cheddar cheese.
Repeat these steps to form a 2nd layer. When applying the second wonton wrapper, you can use this to gently push down the bottom layer and flatten it out. Also, the top layer of cheddar cheese is around 2 tbsp of shredded cheese (whereas the bottom layer is more like 1 tbsp).
Put your cupcake pan into the oven for approx 15 minutes. You'll see the top of the wonton wrappers start to turn brown and get crispy .. this is desired.
Take a single cupcake and put it on a plate. Top this with a dollop of sour cream, some guacamole, chopped tomatoes, diced onions, and shredded lettuce.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
I use two spoons to get an individual cupcake out of the pan.
