Chipotle Chicken Cups

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 24 mini-cups 1x


This Chipotle Chicken Cups Recipe is a HUGE crowd favorite and will fly off the table at record speed. Super simple to make! Detailed photos included.


  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar-Jack cheese (or other favorite cheese)
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded or small-diced
  • 1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers, diced (from the jar works well!)
  • 1 cup favorite salsa
  • 1/2 tsp. chipotle powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Fit one wonton wrapper into each of 24 mini muffin cups coated with cooking spray, pressing the wrappers carefully but firmly into sides of cups. Bake at 350º for 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Keep wontons in muffin cups.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. If it’s fairly juicy (depending on your salsa), it’s helpful to drain out some of the liquid before moving on.
  4. Then add a pinch (about 1/2 Tbsp.) of cheese into each wonton cup, followed by about 1 Tbsp. of the chicken mixture. Then top each wonton with another pinch of cheese. Bake at 350º for 6 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from muffin cups. Serve immediately.
