Is your taco night stale like that previously opened box of Ortega shells hiding in the back corner of the pantry?
We thought so. 🙂
We have tried some new shells recently, including blue corn shells and different textures of soft shells, too. AND we’ve also tried using wonton shells at the recommendation of our sister-in-law. We loved them, and our kids loved them MORE.
I mean, we are talking “portion distortion” loved them.
Thankfully, they are really simple to make. Just prepare your lean ground beef, turkey or venison as usual. Then, fill a muffin tin with JUST the wonton shells, placing one in each hole (they will fold in as demonstrated in the picture above). Bake the shells at 375 degrees until the corners turn just brown…about 3-4 minutes TOPS usually.
Then place about 1-2 TBSP of taco meat and a little cheese on top of each shell and return to the oven to melt the cheese, about 2 minutes.
Lastly, top as you prefer. We enjoyed salsa, red onion, Roma tomato, lettuce and avocado pieces.
We’d love to hear what you think of them.
