Wonton Tacos and Moink Balls

We had two couples over for dinner and I was in charge of appetizers. I did wonton tacos (a great idea I got from Salado) and Moink Balls.

The wonton tacos were super easy: I put wonton wrappers in a greased (Pam) cupcake tin,maddened cooked seasoned ground meat, re fried beans and salsa. I put in Egg indirect at 350 until the corners started to brown and crisped up. Removed and added cheese mix, sour cream and cilantro.

For the Moink Balls I basically followed the recipe from Nibble Me This.

    @caliking I ended up just throwing them in doing without pre cooking. Worked fine.

    Wonton tacos are definitely going into the rotation.  Those look great.  I keep trying to lose weight and all you people keep coming up with even better things to eat.  I give up!

    Job well done! 

    We've actually fried up wontons into a mini-taco shell before like this.


    While they were great that way-very crispy- it sure was a time consuming pain in the rear.  I like your way better!

    Very nice!  That is a really cool trick with the wontons.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
