I love recipes that are quick to make and call for so little ingredients but offer a big bang for your buck!
This is the case with these super cute Mini Taco Bites that I came across on Pinterest (the Women’s Guide to Cooking, Cleaning, Working Out and everything else in between…).

Seeing that my kitchen seems to have a magnetic force field that pulls every family and friend in that direction (or just the fact that I am a fabulous cook and hostess), pulling together quick and efficient meals and appetizers that will satisfy tummies is a must.

These Mini Tex-Mex Taco Bites are ridiculously easy to make and only require 4 main ingredients.
You can always add your own toppings to them.
I like to add sour cream and diced tomatoes and chives or avocado. Delicious! 
These are one of those recipes where you can have your children take part, big or small!

  1. looks delicious. thought my muffin tray would go to waste, since i don’t even use it. going to save this one for sure:) thanks

  2. I made these as part of a Mexican themed birthday feast for my son and all the kids loved them! They were gone in a matter of minutes.

  3. Just a follow up post. I made these for the family yesterday and they were a huge hit!! My son usually doesn’t like the beef when we have taco, so he’ll just make a veggie taco. However, with the taco bites, he couldn’t take out the meat. So he decided if he wanted the crunchy skin, he has to eat the meat and he LOVED IT!! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  4. I made these tonight for the kids and they were a HUGE hit. They loved it and kept asking for more. Might have to add this to my menu once a month and try to squeeze in more veggies in them. Thanks!

  5. Wow! These look great! They look nice and simple to make and I love that they are individual servings. I never used Wonton Wrappers before – something new for me to try. Thanx for posting the recipe!

  6. These look so yummy and easy! I burn everything I touch but I think I can handle this one!
    Thanks for the recipe and inspiration!
