Guacamole Cups

I’m always looking for an excuse to make my favorite homemade guacamole.  And you all know much I love to play with baked wonton cups.  So today it occurred to me — why not combine the two?!?

So I did.

And I’m glad I did.

And I’m pretty sure my friends were glad I did.  Because these were surprisingly amazing!!!

Ok, I say “surprisingly” because I admit I did have a few doubts about whether people would want to eat just straight guacamole appetizers, or if I should add some chicken or something (which I still may try soon).  But I took these simple guacamole cups to share with a big group of friends tonight, and I came home with a happy plate.  They ate every single one, and loved them!!

We all agreed that they are bite-sized chips and guacamole all in one.  The ratio of wonton to guac was perfect, and as always, the baked wontons were delightfully crunchy and made for a super-cute little appetizer.  And I love being able to serve up my favorite guacamole to friends knowing that these little baked cups much healthier than fried chips.  Can’t wait to make them again for parties, game days, or just guacamole craving days!  :)

Guacamole Cups

These baked wonton cups are an easy, crunchy, and healthy way to serve guacamole!



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Then press your desired number of wonton wrappers (you can do this in multiple batches) into a mini baking cup pan to form the “cups”. (Be sure that the corners do not fold in after the pan sits for a minute!) Bake the cups for 10-15 minutes, or until the wrappers are golden brown. Remove and let cool for at least 5 minutes.

Use a spoon to scoop in the guacamole into each cup. Serve immediately.

If you make this recipe, be sure to snap a photo and hashtag it #gimmesomeoven. I'd love to see what you cook!

    between these and the little butterfinger brownie trifles, I’m in mini-food heaven :) Guacamole is at the bottom of my food pyramid along with hummus, peanut butter, and sprinkles. I love condiments lol!

    These are so cute and SO DANGEROUS. I could probably eat them all since I’m the biggest chip-and-dip-fiend known to man. And because I’m pretty positive my blood type is guacamole. Yum!

    I would eat the whole batch of these, considering I eat avocado with a spoon. LOVE!

    These look so good! Thinking about making these for the event tomorrow night. Do you think I could do the won-ton cups today and fill them tomorrow or will they get stale?

    So clever and simple. Awesome idea. Pinned it!

  10. Jennifer @ Mother Thyme — August 30, 2012 @ 9:29 am (#)

    Wow! What a clever idea. I always make guacamole when we have friends over. They will be so surprised the next time I serve it like this!

  11. Michelle — August 30, 2012 @ 9:49 am (#)

    I instantly envisioned a super size version of the whole bowl of guacamole in a taco salad shell. That’d be a my-size version!

    What a perfect appetizer!

    I think I just found my new party staple. Looks great and yes it’s 9am and I am now craving guacamole

  16. Sues — August 31, 2012 @ 8:15 am (#)

    Best idea ever! I’ll eat my guacamole any way I can, but I love that this combines the chip and dip :)

    You always come up with the best wonton cup recipes! This guac one might just be my favorite though!

  18. Kathryn — August 31, 2012 @ 10:30 am (#)

    What a perfect idea!

  19. katie — August 31, 2012 @ 4:36 pm (#)

    I love the idea of serving the guacamole in the baked wonton cups! gorgeous photos as always!

  20. Anna @ hiddenponies — September 1, 2012 @ 8:54 pm (#)

    Everything is better in single serving sizes – no double dipping! I’m a recent guacamole convert and could go for a dozen or two of these :)

  21. Jen @ Savory Simple — September 2, 2012 @ 6:30 am (#)

    Guacamole is pretty much my favorite food ever. These are awesome!

  22. Kare @ Kitchen Treaty — September 3, 2012 @ 9:09 am (#)

    Oh, I love this idea! Pretty *and* delicious.

  23. Erin @ Texanerin Baking — September 3, 2012 @ 11:41 am (#)

    I love these because it makes the germ thing not a problem. Double dippers beware at my place! You’ll get told off. :) I’ll remember these for the next time I have a party!

  24. Kelli @ The Corner Kitchen — September 5, 2012 @ 8:00 am (#)

    Ahhh…these are sooo adorable!

  25. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts — September 5, 2012 @ 7:01 pm (#)

    Ok, this is my favorite! I could really just eat guacamole with a spoon anyway. But this makes it so much better!

  26. Tracy — September 12, 2012 @ 9:23 am (#)

    Perfect game day food! Can’t wait to try them!

    I took the liberty of adding bacon and will add diced roma tomatoes on the top but on the trial version my fam loved them with added bacon no tomatoes i have to admit I always change something saw these and from closet cooking he added bacon so..i had too..but thanks for the cups always looking for something cool to stuff them with

    I found the recipe on Pinterest. I was worried they wouldn’t have enough “pop”, so I added a sprinkle of shredded cheese and a teaspoon or so of salsa to the wonton cups before baking. I added the guacamole to the cooled cups and topped them with another sprinkle of cheese– they were a tremendous hit! Thanks for such a great idea. :)

    I’ve used the wonton cups for many things and the guacamole is a great idea. Just curious…think we could use corn tortillas in the same way to make corn tortilla cups? Think they would toast up the same way as wontons do?

      I haven’t tried it, but I think it might work! I would cook the tortillas low and slow so that they don’t burn.
