Chicken Taco Cups Recipe

For holiday parties and summer picnics, try these stuffed wonton cups with a Southwest-style chicken filling. You can freeze them, too. Just reheat after thawing. —Lee Ann Lowe, Gray, Maine
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 envelope reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) salsa, divided
  • 2 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided
  • 36 wonton wrappers
  • Sour cream, chopped green onions and chopped ripe olives, optional

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle chicken with taco seasoning. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook and stir the chicken over medium heat for 5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
  • 2. Transfer chicken to a food processor; cover and process until chopped. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, onion, half of the salsa and 1 cup cheese.
  • 3. Press wonton wrappers into miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 4. Spoon rounded tablespoonfuls of chicken mixture into cups; top with remaining salsa and cheese. Bake 15 minutes longer or until heated through. Serve warm. Garnish with sour cream, green onions and olives if desired. Yield: 3 dozen.

    "I fully intend to make these this weekend for hubby&I as I ALWAYS have boneless/skinless Chix Breasts in the freezer. I also make my own salsa so I know ingredients present plus I just made home made taco seasoning from recipe online-I have problems with MSG-will check amount on typical pkg of the stuff from store.

    will also get a friend this recipe > he always comes to me requesting what he calls "over the top wow factor" appetizers, I know he'll love this one. thank you LAL from Maine"

    "I made these tonight & I made the mistake of using a tsp of taco seasoning. I did use leftover turkey & chopped it real fine. Going to make this again though with more taco seasoning."
