Taco Cups!


I love making Mexican food just because Matt turns into a comical Mexican character the entire time we’re cooking & eating.

Lots of finger tambourine gestures and “Aye aye aye aye!”

DIY Mexican has been a staple in our house recently because it allows us to customize our plates. I tend to go lower on all the cheese & beans while Matt can pile his tostadas/tacos/burritos as much as humanly possible.

We started by making the wonton cups following the recipe here.

I assembled all the fixings: taco seasoned faux beef, refried beans heated up with a splash of hot sauce, green onions, sour cream and shredded cheese.

There may have been a margarita involved.
{If you haven’t tried Crystal Light’s mocktails yet do so immediately}

Pile all ingredients into wonton cups (we made our cups ahead of time and they were perfectly delicious cold!)

Best part of Mexican? Leftovers!

    i LOVE homemade mexican food! i always feel so much better when i eat it at home v. going out. i tend to overdo the chips in restaurants and it ruins my whole meal! :)

      Lol – endless chips + dip plus 500+ calorie Margaritas are very hard to resist when eating out!

      Well from now on we’ll have to wear a sombrero! Maybe we should dress in theme every time we cook? Oh what amazing photos that would make :)

      Ohhh these would make a great alternative to the traditional bean dip appetizer! Now I want to throw a DIY Mexican food party!

    I love Mexican but always eat too many chips and salsa when we go out for it. These cups are a
    Better alternative and much healthier!
