Southwestern Eggroll Cups

Southwestern Eggroll Cups #SundaySupper

It’s been several years since I was introduced to the world of wonton wrappers by my niece and became instantly addicted to her Sausage Wontons – mmmm so darn good. I’ve created several appetizers with wontons since, like Reuben Wontons and Taco Cupcakes. I never get tired of their versatility. They’re the perfect little boat for a food cruise. Today, while I’m excited for the Big Game, I’m really excited for all the great food we’ve come to count on at Big Game parties. These Southwestern Eggroll Cups are totally touchdown worthy, along with so many others below from the #SundaySupper home team that are practically guaranteed to make this party your best Big Game party yet.  Southwestern Eggroll Cups have everything you think of when your mind goes Southwestern – chicken, cheese, black beans, corn, bell peppers, lime juice, cilantro and if you can handle the heat ~ jalapeno. They’re perfect any day, but especially for the Big Game when you want the food to be, well…super!

Southwestern Eggroll Cups

I love egg rolls. What’s not to love? It’s a meal in one neat package. Sometimes my husband and I will get a carryout of eggrolls from our local Chinese restaurant and make a meal out of them. As much as I love them though, they’re fried and I’m finding lately in order to fit into anything with a waistband, I need to use that particular ‘F’ word less frequently. Baked Southwestern Eggroll Cups are crispy, cheesy, spicy ~ everything you want in a game-time appetizer ~ and baked.

So whether you’re hosting a Big Game party, a guest at someone else’s or even quietly (or maybe not so quietly) cheering on your favorite team at home, these Southwestern Eggroll Cups are a must have.

Southwestern Eggroll Cups

This recipe comes together really quickly with these simple ingredients:

  • Olive oil
  • Cooking spray
  • Wonton wrappers
  • Red onion
  • Red pepper
  • Jalapeno (optional)
  • Corn
  • Black beans
  • Shredded or finely diced chicken (leftover or rotisserie work great!)
  • Spicy Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix (dry package)
  • Sharp cheddar cheese
  • Cream cheese
  • Lime juice
  • Cilantro

. . .and just two ingredients for a delicious sauce to top them:

  • Avocado
  • Plain Greek yogurt           

The filling for these Southwestern Eggroll Cups can be made earlier in the day or even the day before and refrigerated.

Preheat the oven to 400, then drizzle a bit of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the diced onion and bell peppers, sautéing 3-5 minutes over medium heat. If you’re packin’ heat, this is the time to add the jalapeno.

While the veggies sauté lightly spray the bottoms of the mini muffin tins. This helps crisp the wonton wrappers and gives you the illusion of frying. Gently mold the wontons into the muffin tins.

When the veggies are finished cooking, add the corn, beans and chicken to the skillet and blend.

. . .then bake 8-10 minutes or until they’re golden brown.

While the cups are baking, smash the avocado and mix with plain Greek yogurt. Chill until you’re ready for it.
