Pinterest Success! (vs. Pinterest fail)

So by now we all know how much I like to “pin”. But, just “pinning” doesn’t get you anything but a website full of pretty pictures. I get excited to try things and see if they really work.

The biggest question out there for me is all of the recipes with all of these ridiculously delicious pictures attached to them. I always wonder if the recipes really live up to what the pictures are saying.

I decided with recipes, I will pin them into a generic folder until I actually put the effort in and try them. Once they are tried, they will either be deleted (pinterest fail) or moved to a new Tried and True Recipes folder (pinterest success)

This weekend we went to a friend’s birthday party during the day. I wanted to bring a fun appetizer to share, and decided this would be the perfect opportunity to try a new pinterest recipe. If they were awful I could quietly push them to the back of the table and tip toe away… Good news is, the first pinterest recipe was a success!

So… here is the original pin… which is linked to this fun blog… where the recipe originally came from.

And here is the recipe:

Fully Loaded Taco Bites

1 pkg Won Ton wrappers (in the produce section)

1 lb ground turkey (I used beef)

Taco Seasoning packet

1 can black beans, drained, rinsed and roughly chopped

3/4 cup shredded cheese

Toppings of your choice. I used:

Finely shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, diced green onions, sour cream and sliced olives.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

With cooking spray, coat a nonstick muffin tin. Gently press one wrapper into each muffin cup.

Won Ton Wrappers- in the produce section!

Brown ground turkey. Add seasoning packet and cook as directed.

Chopped black beans with taco seasoning and ground beef

Stir chopped black beans into seasoned turkey. Using a Tablespoon, fill won ton wrappers with one scoop each and sprinkle lightly with cheese.

Bake in oven for 8 minutes.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with your favorite toppings.

It made a ton of them! They were really good 🙂

Serve while warm or cold. They’re delish either way!

Makes approx. 42 Taco Bites.

And some images from the original blog where this recipe came from…

Have you tried any recipes from pinterest? Any that were a success? I would love to hear what they are!
