Taco Tuesday Meal ... Taco "Cupcakes" Weight Watcher 4 Pts

Since the Cheeseburger Cupcakes where a hit on Monday for dinner, I thought why not spice up Taco Tuesday at the house and make Emily Bites Taco Cupcake's! For those doing weight watcher's these are 4 point per cupcake. I just love it since I know it has the numbers I need to track with myfitness pal so I stay in the limits my trainer gave me. Enjoy!!


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chili oil (found near the Asian ingredients)
  • ½ lb 95% lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • ¾ cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 16 wonton wrappers (found in the produce section)
  • 5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon of queso dip or salsa con queso
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 8 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Heat chili oil in a sauté pan or large skillet over medium-high heat, add the ground beef and taco seasoning and brown beef, breaking it up with a spoon. Add black beans and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until warm.
  3. Push a wonton wrapper into the bottom of each of the eight sprayed cups in the muffin tin. Spoon a teaspoon of queso dip into each wonton wrapper and spread across the bottom. Follow by spooning some of the meat/beans mixture into each cup (using about half the total mixture) and then splitting ½ cup of the salsa evenly into each cup. Sprinkle about half the shredded Mexican cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Press another wonton wrapper on top and repeat the layering steps with the remaining ingredients.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.
