Taco Bites

Heat oven to 425°F. Line a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
Combine the jack cheese, black beans, corn, tomatoes, garlic powder and paprika in a large bowl.
Keep wonton wrappers covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel. Place a scant tablespoonful jack cheese filling in the center of one wrapper. With the wrapper in a diamond shape, fold bottom point over filling. Fold side points toward center of filling. Moisten remaining point with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat step with remaining filling and wrappers.
Place bread crumbs in a medium, shallow bowl. Brush bites with water; let any excess water drip off. Coat in bread crumbs, shaking off any excess coating. Place bites on prepared pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with yogurt dip.
