Ree Drummond uses a mini muffin pan for her easy appetizer recipe

Drummond demonstrated how to make the sweet appetizer on an episode of The Pioneer Woman dedicates herself to simple recipes for her daughter Alex. The Food Network host put together a care kit of kitchen supplies and recipes for Alex when she was just beginning her adult journey.

Drummond included a mini muffin pan in the package. “Of course she can make muffins, cupcakes, brownies out of them. It’s really useful for making lots of small dishes, including a really simple appetizer that’s perfect for hanging out with friends,” she explained.

“So I make wonton taco cups,” the Food Network host shared. “You have so much to offer. They happen to be adorable little snacks, very easy to make, and they use a shortcut ingredient that I always appreciate.”

How to make Ree Drummond’s wonton taco cups

Drummond began to coat each cavity of the muffin pan with melted butter. “And now for the shortcut ingredient, I use wonton wrappers,” she said. She squeezed one wrapper into each of the pan’s 12 cups.

Next, Drummond made a “really simple filling” for the appetizer. She mixed black beans, diced green chiles, lime juice, and chili powder in a bowl and added a spoonful to each cup.

Drummond baked the wonton appetizers in a 375-degree Fahrenheit oven for 12 minutes, topped each with shredded Monterey cheese, and baked for an additional 5 minutes.

After chilling for a minute for the appetizer, she added fixins. Drummond added diced avocado, pico de gallo, sour cream, hot sauce, and cilantro. “The idea is to cover the filling that’s baked in the cups with fresh, cool ingredients,” explained Drummond.

“The cutest wonton taco cup in the history of wonton taco cups,” she boasted. “How cute are they?”

The full recipe is available on the Food Network website.

Drummond prepared her daughter for her first apartment success

During the episode, Drummond shared the kitchen supplies and recipes she sent to her daughter in a large package. “I remember when I started and had my first apartment, I didn’t have a good knife,” she shared. “And every time I had to cut vegetables, I used a table knife. I just remember getting frustrated whenever I had to cook. If only someone had told me to get a really good knife.”

While preparing the appetizer, the Food Network host commented on how great it was to have recipes available to entertain guests. “I don’t know if Alex has done much entertainment at her apartment. I know she was so excited to move into an apartment with her friends,” noted Drummond. “And I know that with so many friends like her in Dallas … she’s going to need some little recipes like this from time to time.”
