Wonton wrappers are my favorite thing to cook with lately.
They're so versatile and almost force you to make mini versions of food. We all like tacos but have you ever had a Wonton Taco
? It's like eating your favorite taco except for this one is a bite-sized version of the original... the perfect finger food!
These Wonton Tacos start with some chicken seasoned with taco seasoning and some barbecue sauce. I know barbecue sauce sounds like a strange addition, but it adds a little sweetness and kick to the tacos. Some cilantro and cheese are all you need to add that classic taco flavor.
Add about 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture to your wonton wrapper. Although that sounds like a lot for such a little "taco" holder, the wonton is sturdy when baked and you want to get the most you can out of your real estate here.
To seal the tacos together just use a little water and press the opposing edges together. These don't take long to bake but with some cooking spray they brown up nice and golden.
If you want to add a whole lot of heat, top the wonton tacos with some sliced red chili peppers after they have baked. And if your mouth is on fire, add a little avocado to the next taco to cool it down. At least that's what I did! Christy joined the Tablespoon team to share her recipes and inspire family food fun.
