Won Ton Wrapper Cups!

This is such a cute idea!  I saw it on a cooking show and had to try it.  You use won ton wrappers to make little crispy cups that you can fill with almost anything.  Chicken salad, tuna salad, taco fixings, fried rice, etc.  They are perfect for party appetizers because you can make them ahead of time then just fill them at the last minute.  Plus, they are really easy to make.  Here's how you do it:


won ton wrappers
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.  Place one won ton wrapper into each cup of the mini muffin tin.  Push down to form a cup.  Spritz a little cooking spray on top of the cups.

Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 5 minutes or until light brown and crispy.  Be careful not to burn them!

Fill them with whatever you like.  I used them for taco shells and made little taco appetizers.  I filled half with seasoned ground beef and half with seasoned black beans (I just added a little taco seasoning to a can of black beans).  Then, I sprinkled on shredded cheese, tomatoes, green onions, etc.  My kids loved these!

You could also season the cups.  After you spritz them with cooking spray (before you bake them) just season them with salt and pepper or taco seasoning or Italian seasoning, etc.  Use whatever compliments your filling.

For a sweet variation:  Sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar before baking.  When done, fill them with warmed apple pie filling and whipped cream!

As you can see, the possibilities are endless.  That's why I love this idea.  Hope you do, too!

*Note:  If you have trouble finding won ton wrappers, try the produce section of the grocery store.  They have to stay refrigerated so a lot of stores keep them there.
