What’s Cookin’ in the Parsonage?

If you have an event like a wedding or baby shower that you have to prepare food for in the future, I have a great suggestion for you today!  I attended a baby shower this weekend at church. Showers are great.  The honoree’ gets all kinds of lovely gifts, and all the guests at our church showers enjoy great fellowship, and get to try some delicious foods!  The ladies that put the showers together know how to cook and they made some really tasty stuff!  

They usually always serve Coffee punch. Wow, this stuff is yummy!

One of our fabulous young women bakes cupcakes for the event.  Saturday’s choices were White Chocolate Raspberry and Cookies and Cream.  Seriously, this gal needs a bakery.

But the main feature of this lunch menu was an appetizer –  Won-ton Tacos. They were adorable appetizer size tacos wrapped in a Won Ton wrapper.  Yum!  They looked like a fancy hors d’oeurve, but I learned that they were quite simple to make…and they were so good!

My plate

Won-Ton Tacos


24 wonton wrappers
 1 pound lean ground beef
 1 (1.12 ounce) package  Dry Taco Seasoning Mix
 2 tablespoons  Picante Sauce
 1/2 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa
 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Press wonton wrappers into mini-muffin cups. My friend par-baked her wonton wrappers a little before adding the meat mixture.
Cook beef in skillet until browned. Drain off fat. Stir in taco seasoning mix and picante sauce.
Spoon beef mixture into wonton cups. Top with salsa and cheese.
Bake about 8 minutes or until wontons are golden brown.
Serve immediately with additional salsa. Garnish with sour cream and cilantro, if desired. Makes 24 appetizers.

Do you have a special something you make for showers?
