These wonton cups are great for any tailgate or watch party on game day. They would be equally as good for Taco Tuesday or Cinco de Mayo. I made them using ground beef from my ButcherBox.

Why Butcher Box?
If you’re not familiar with ButcherBox, they are an a meat delivery service that thoughtfully sources meat and seafood from partners who are dedicated to doing the right thing. This means:
- Beef is grass-fed and grass-finished
- Pork is heritage-breed
- Chicken is free-range and organic
- Seafood is wild-caught
ALL DELIVERED TO YOUR FRONT DOOR STEP! What I like most about ButcherBox is that I can order my meat and decide what I’m cooking later, rather than being locked into a specific recipe that doesn’t sound good later in the week. Or I can pick every cut of meat and plan our recipes around that meat. This service is completely flexible!
