Simple Kid-Approved Recipe: Taco Potstickers

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

This kid-friendly recipe makes dinner a cinch! Taco meat wrapped in wonton skins - easy to make, and as tasty as it sounds!


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 package wonton skins
  • Canola oil, water and pastry brush


  1. Cook the ground beef as you would for tacos.
  2. Drain and add taco seasoning.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Open wonton skins and separate.
  5. Using a pastry brush and a cup of water, paint water around the edges of the wonton skins to moisten.
  6. Add one teaspoon of taco meat into each wonton skin.
  7. Fold skin into a triangle and press slightly to seal. I suggest making all the taco potstickers before cooking. They cook quickly and it is difficult to do both preparing and cooking at the same time without something going terribly wrong.
  8. Heat about 1/4 cup of canola oil in a large skillet.
  9. Add the potstickers one at a time in batches. Cook for approximately one minute and then turn. The potstickers should be slightly browned when they are done.
  10. Drain on paper towel.
