Taco Cupcakes

It is mighty hard to come up with a recipe that three children and a husband enjoy at my house.  If one girl likes pasta with marinara sauce, the other two can't stand it.  If two of them like hot dogs cut up in their macaroni, the other one doesn't like hot dogs AND can't stand cheese sauce on pasta.  I don't usually make multiple meals, but I do try to find things that I think all our family members will enjoy. 
My latest experiment is with taco cupcakes.  I found this recipe on a blog somewhere, but can't seem to relocate it.  Here is my version of it based on what I read (and since everyone at my house liked it, I think I will be sticking with it):

1lb ground beef, browned
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 can black beans
36 wonton wrappers
shredded cheese
cheese con queso
sour cream, guacamole, tomatoes, olives, etc.

Brown meat in skillet, drain.  Add black beans, taco seasoning and 2/3 c. water
Spray no-stick cooking spray in muffin tins.  Place a wonton wrapper in each muffin tin (makes 18)
Add cheese con queso to bottom, then ground beef mixture, salsa and shredded cheese.
Add wonton wrapper for second layer and repeat ingredients again.

Bake for 20 minutes at 375. 
Add onion, cheese, guacamole, tomatoes, olives, sour cream, etc.

My husband even remarked about how much he enjoyed these taco cupcakes.  This recipe is a definite winner at my house and a nice twist to our standard taco supper.

YUM!! That looks and sounds like a winner. Mind if I try it?!?!

Hang in there for the end of the school year. That's what I'm trying to do!
