Taco Bites

I made these last night for our small group, hubby REALLY liked them and everyone else must have enjoyed them to because they were all gone.  The original recipe says that it makes 24, mine made 36.

wonton wrappers (I needed more like 36)
1pound(s) lean ground beef
1package(s) (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning mix
2tablespoon(s) Pace® Picante Sauce
½cup(s) Pace® Chunky Salsa
4ounce(s) shredded Mexican cheese blend
Sour cream
Pitted ripe olives
Queso dip

Heat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Press the wonton wrappers into 24 (1 1/2-inch) mini muffin-pan cups.
Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to break up the meat.
Pour off any fat.
Stir in the taco seasoning mix and picante sauce. (I use tomato sauce)   
Spoon the beef mixture into the wonton cups.
Top with the salsa and cheese.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the wontons are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
Garnish with sour cream and olives, if desired.
Serve immediately with additional salsa.
