How many times have you panicked over what to take to a party? You have a box and online file full of recipes but you can’t think of one recipe to make! Am I right?
Here’s your answer to that plight. Now, you may recall I posted Quick Chile Cheese Dip a while back. You can serve this filling as a dip, in wonton cups, in biscuit cups, in quesadillas. It’s truly versatile. You can find that recipe here.
How to make Green Chile Cheese Wonton Cups
- First, I do find it much easier to mix if the cream cheese is at room temperature. However, don’t fret if you forgot to set it out. You can microwave the cream cheese on medium for a few seconds to warm it.
- Next, you can use fresh, frozen, or canned corn. You’ll need to cook fresh and frozen corn. For canned, you can simply drain the corn.
- Also, drain the green chile peppers.
- Shred pepper jack cheese.
- Finally, mix together the cream cheese, corn, peppers, cheese, and Ranch seasoning mix. If you want to control the salt in the Ranch, here’s my Homemade recipe. Otherwise, use the store-bought packet.
- Optional, you can add cayenne pepper, hot sauce, or Sriracha sauce if you want a little zing to the dip.
- I get the wonton wrappers that are about 3×3 inches, not the egg roll size wrappers.
Tips for wontons
- I use regular muffin tins for larger bites. However, you can use a mini muffin tin for super cute bites. You’ll need more wonton wrappers if you make small cups.
- Lightly spritz the wonton wrappers with this cooking spray to help them brown and crisp in the oven.
