We like these so much at my house that we make them for dinner. Why not?! A few healthy Crunchy Taco Cups, a little pico de gallo, and lots of guacamole and its party time for dinner!


If you want truly plant based Crunchy Taco Cups (most wonton wrappers contain eggs) you can find vegan wonton wrappers in the store, but it is challenging.  You might try these recipes for vegan wontons –

Vegan Wonton Dumpling Wrappers [It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken]

Vegan Wonton Wrappers [Cilantro and Citronella]

Remember, if you keep it plant based you eliminate all of the cholesterol!

Pin it for later!
