Taco Wonton Cups are wonton wrappers baked in a muffin tin and filled with your favorite Taco combinations. I’m filling these with my Easy Salsa Verde Chicken.

These bite size, crispy wonton cups are great for a build your own taco night, and since they are small everyone can try different combinations. 

The wonton cups are easy to make and healthier since they are baked instead of fried.  There’s also no need to cut the wrappers since they fit perfectly in the muffin tin. Try this recipe for Wonton Guacamole Cups.


Muffin Tin– Regular or Mini size will work. If you use a mini one, there won’t be as much room for fillings.

Spray Oil– I used avocado oil spray, but any oil spray would work. You can also use a pastry brush and oil. 

Wonton Wrappers– You can find wonton wrappers in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. They are typically in the same area with tofu and other Asian foods.

Preheat your oven to 350 F, and spray or brush the muffin tin with oil. 

Place a wonton wrapper in the center of the muffin tin and gently press it down. Repeat till all the tins are filled and bake for 8-10 minutes. 

Keep an eye on them after 8 minutes, because these can over bake quickly.

Taco Fillings

The options are endless with these, but I’m sharing 2 filling options that my family loves. 

Salsa Chicken- My super easy 2 ingredient Instant Pot Salsa Chicken. It’s just chicken and your favorite salsa. You can also make this ahead of time in a slow cooker too.

Ground Taco Beef– A classic taco ground beef mixture. Ground Beef seasoned with Mexican spices pairs perfect with some re fried beans on the bottom.

Can the Wonton Cups be Reheated?

I recommend only assembling the taco wontons prior to serving them.

You can make the wonton shells ahead of time. Bake as directed, allow them to cool on a wire rack, stack them gently, and place in an airtight container up to 1 day.

They can then be reheated in a toaster oven or oven at 300 degrees for a couple minutes until warm.

We also like having these with a side of Mexican Rice and Beans.
