The result was a crispy shell bursting with flavor. We made a meal out of them by serving them with rice and beans but I also think they would make an amazing game day snack. The tacos are bite sized, easy to eat, and very filling. This will definitely be on the menu a lot during football season.

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 . salt
½ red bell pepper, chopped
½ green bell pepper, chopped

2 T. cilantro, finely chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
2. Place the wonton wrappers in the mini muffins cups, gently folding the wrapper slightly so that they fit. Set aside.

Note: Cooked, shredded chicken can be used in place of the ground beef in this recipe in order to make chicken wonton tacos.
