We eat with our eyes first. This appetizer definitely catches your eye and the secret is – they are so easy to make!

Some recipes are more of an assemble kind of recipe vs. cooking everything from scratch and guess what.. that’s okay! It makes prep time much shorter saving you time in the kitchen. For this recipe, I used prepared guacamole and mango salsa. Feel free to create your version from scratch.

How to make wonton cups

Tip: Wonton wrappers are often found in the produce section of the grocery store.

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 24-cup mini muffin tin with nonstick spray.
  • Press wonton wrappers into each of the muffin tins, to create a cup shape.
  • Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Bonus: For extra flavor, brush the wontons with olive oil and sprinkle additional seasonings to the wonton wrappers before baking.

Skip this step: Don’t feel like making the wonton cups? Stack the layers of guacamole, mango salsa, and shrimp in a “scoop” chip.
