  5. Cut Velveeta into 24 equal sized cubes. Place a cube of Velveeta onto each wonton wrapper. Then spoon 1 Tbsp. of the meat and bean mixture into each cup. (Note: On my initial try, I melted the Velveeta before adding it, however it re-solidified so quickly that I chose to not include that in these instructions.) Velveeta and Meat
  6. Spoon 1/2 Tbsp. of salsa into each cup. Sprinkle about half the shredded Mexican cheese evenly over the top of each cup. Adding Salsa

I love these taco cups for parties, and also for portion control. They're super easy to make and are a lovely 1 to 2 bite delight. I've made these in mini muffin tins but you can use regular sized ones and increase the ingredient amounts accordingly so they're a bit bigger.
