  3. Spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray and place a wonton wrapper into each cup.
  4. Top each wonton wrapper with 1 Tbs. of taco meat + 1 Tbs. of shredded cheese.
  5. Repeat steps 1-3. Make sure to press the second wonton down firmly into the muffin tin to ensure there is enough space for all ingredients.
