Black Bean & Mango Salsa Cups

Some of the first appetizers I decided to make for our “Spring Into Summer” party last week were these little “Black Bean & Mango Salsa Cups”.  The recipe could not have been simpler — just a yummy mango and black bean salsa popped into baked wonton cups.  Easy, cute, fresh, and delicious.  Well, apparently the guys in the room had a different spin on “cute”…

Derek: “Dude, what are these little things?  They’re really good!”

Other guys in room: “They look like little claws.”  “Yeah, man, like talons!”  “With salsa!”

Derek: “So they’re like RO*TEL talons.  RO*TALONS!!!!”

Thus blogosphere, I introduce to you cute little salsa cups.  Or Ro*Talons.  :)

Black Bean & Mango Salsa Cups

You'll love this delicious and easy Black Bean & Mango Salsa Cups recipe! It's ready to enjoy in 15 minutes or less!


  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • 1 can RO*TEL diced tomatoes and green chiles, drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained
  • 1 can whole-kernel corn
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the wonton "cups" by gently pressing each wrapper down into a mini-baking cup, careful to be sure that the corners are folded out and not in. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until the cups are firm and slightly golden.

Meanwhile, stir together all remaining salsa ingredients in a bowl until combined. Once the wonton cups are ready, spoon the salsa into each cup, and serve immediately.

Ali's Tip:

Feel free to substitute in any of your favorite chunky salsa recipes with these!  Just be sure that the salsas are well-drained, otherwise the bottoms of the wonton cups will get soggy.
