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! :)
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.
