What You Need

1 lb ground beef

1 pkg taco seasoning mix

16 wonton wrappers

1 c Mexican blend shredded cheese

1 large chopped tomato

1/2 c shredded lettuce

1 small onion, diced

1 can black olives, sliced

1/2 c water

3/4 c canola oil


• In a skillet, brown hamburger until no longer pink. Drain hamburger. Add taco seasoning and 1/4 cup water. Let simmer.

• Chop tomato, lettuce and tomato. Set aside.

• Fill wonton wrappers with 1 tablespoon of hamburger, sprinkle with cheese and fold in triangle. Brush edges of wontons with remaining water to seal the seams.

• In a medium skillet, warm oil over medium high heat. Add wontons, brown on each side, about 2 minutes.

• Remove from skillet once golden and crispy. Place on paper towels to absorb any grease.

• Add toppings, as you would a taco. Serve with refried beans and rice, or as an appetizer.
