Pork Taquito Cups with Avocado and Sour Cream Recipe

Ingredients

24 won ton wrappers
Olive oil spray
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 medium white onion, finely chopped
1 pound ground pork
3/4 Tablespoon ancho chile powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted and ground
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of allspice
1 small chipotle in adobo, seeds remove and finely chopped + ½ teaspoon adobo sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon lime juice, plus additional wedges for garnish
2 Tablespoons minced cilantro, plus more for garnish
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 avocado, cut into ¼-inch cubes

Methods/Steps

Won Ton Crisps: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray won tons with olive oil and put wrappers in mini muffin tins. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden. (Can burn easily so watch carefully).

Taquito Filling: Heat olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add onion and pork. Cook until onion is translucent and soft, about 5 minutes and the pork has rendered its fat. Drain off the fat. Return to heat and add chile powder, oregano, cumin, cinnamon, allspice, chipotle, adobo and salt. Cook for 30 seconds. Add vinegar and lime juice. Remove from heat and add cilantro.

Assemble: Scoop a generous tablespoon of the pork mixture into the won ton cup. Sprinkle with some shredded cheese. Transfer cups to a warm oven to let the cheese melt. Once out of the oven, sprinkle with cubes of avocado and spoon a small dollop of sour cream on top. Garnish with a tiny lime triangle and serve immediately.
