Guacamole Wonton Cups

Guacamole Wonton Cups

Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner. February 6th to be exact. Green Bay Packers versus Pittsburgh Steelers. My last blog post was dedicated to my godmother. It’s only natural I dedicate this post to my godfather. The Pittsburgh Steelers are my godfather’s favorite sports team of all time. He’s a fanatic. His still regularly wears his Steelers hat I gave him for Christmas twenty years ago. I’ll be rooting for your team, Joe, and thinking of you this Super Bowl Sunday. If you’re not into football or don’t care for Super Bowl, these easy, entertaining appetizers are great for any occasion.

WONTONS: You might be able to find gluten-free wonton wrappers at a natural health food store or online but if you can’t, you can make your own. Here is a simple recipe for Gluten-Free Homemade WontonsHappy Super Bowl!

Guacamole Wonton Cups
Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • 8 store-bought wonton wrappers
  • ½ avocado, finely chopped (about 2 ounces)
  • ½ cup grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a mini-muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Gently press wonton wrappers into muffin cups. Bake for 7 minutes or until lightly golden.
  3. In a small bowl, combine avocado, tomatoes, chives, lemon juice and salt and mix well. To assemble cups, spoon in about 1 teaspoon of mixture. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

        We have some major Steeler fan friends – so they’re ecstatic! Our team (the Patriots) aren’t there, but we’ll still be attending several Super Bowl parties and I love every one of these wonton cups! Way to add a sophisticated touch to football food :) Thanks, Trish and congrats on the Top 9!

        • http://dishbytrish.com Trish

          Your friends must be stoked for the Super Bowl then. Thanks for reading and commenting, Priscilla. Have a wonderful weekend and a great Super Bowl Sunday!

    • http://lemonsandanchovies.wordpress.com/ Jean

      Trish, these wonton cups are so bright and festive. There’s a flavor combination to suit everyone–I love that. I like them all but if I HAD to choose, I would go for the caramelized onion, gorgonzola and walnut ones. I can’t resist gorgonzola!

      Your photos are so sharp–they’re very nice to look at. :-)

      I hope you’re having a great week. :-)

      • http://dishbytrish.com Trish

        Those are my favorites too! Thanks for your nice comments, Jean. And thanks for supporting me :-)

    These wonton cups look awesome! Im hosting a gathering on Superbowl Sunday but I have to admit until reading this I didn’t know who was playing! Ha… >.> oh well. I apologize to your grandfather (please don’t tell him I didn’t know).

    • http://dishbytrish.com Trish

      Don’t worry. I’ve been watching football games for how many years and I still don’t know the game well. Have fun!

    hi Trish
    Wow, congrats on your top 9 today, its easy to see why it was picked, its beautiful!
    Those are some really great fillings for those cups, and you really could do so many others, what a wonderful idea. I hear the stars are aligned for Pittsburgh and Big Ben this year, everything is coming up 7′s for them, your godfather may have a very good day!
    Cheers
    Dennis

    • http://dishbytrish.com Trish

      You must be a Steelers fan being so close and all…or at least rooting for then, right Dennis? Have a great weekend Dennis. Thanks for reading :-)

  • http://aspicyperspective.com Sommer@ASpicyPerspective

    Oh they all look awesome. I’d go for the blue cheese and walnut wontons first!

  • http://www.foodchowdown.com Gabby@FoodChowDown

    I didn’t know what this was exactly but it looked so yummy and colorful, i had to click through. My number one is the avocado and grape tomato. Congrats on making the top 9

    • http://www.tartedujour.com lisa McDonnell

      These are lovely! I love bit sized food for a party. Congrats on the top 9! Go Steelers!

  • http://whatsfordinner-acrossstatelines.blogspot.com/ whatsfordinneracrossstatelines

    Trish these are beautiful. I love the tomato and avacado, but I think I might want to grap one of the cheese and onion ones first. I hope the Steelers win! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Hey Trish! CONGRATS! Fellow Top 9er. Ummm, is Super Bowl this weekend cause I’ve been too busy taking pictures of food and dropping things on the floor of my kitchen to notice. Ooopsie. These look awesome, I will have to impress the family with them!

  • http://www.cooksbookblog.com Marisa

    Congrats on making the top 9, Trish! These 3 wonton cups are all fantsatic. Looove the carmalized onion and gorgonzola. I’m not big on football so my only excuse for taking part in Superbowl Sunday is the food!

  • http://www.sprint2thetable.com Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    I love your variations! Have you tried the wrappers for dessert? I just brush them with coconut oil, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and pop them in the over for a few. I bet they’d also be great stuffed with seasonal fruits and some ricotta.

  • http://bohemiankitchen.com/ Claudie

    I love the avocado + tomato grape ones. If I could, I’d have one right away. (Or rather two.) Oh, and I wouldn’t reject the Gorgonzola/caramelized onions/walnuts either :)

  • http://www.sprinklingofsugar.com Sprinkling of Sugar

    Umm….yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love all of these absolutely gorgeous ideas. What a fantastic and easy way to feed a bunch of people really quickly. Somehow around superbowl time football fans are always the hungriest and I love new ideas. Thanks for sharing these!

  • http://www.culinarytribune.com Reiko

    These look great! I love the idea of making cups with wonton wrappers!! We are planning a big birthday party for my sister-in-law this weekend, and I’d love to make these. :)

    I love little wonton cups!! I made some a few weeks ago, but used a different filling. I’m so excited to have more fillings. The cups are so easy to make and I love the “crunch”. I’m all over these!! Nicely done, Trish, and congrats on the Top 9!

  • http://sandraseasycooking.blogspot.com/ Sandra

    First of all picture perfect, and second it looks so so so yummy!

  • http://joylicious.net Joy

    Trish I saw this picture on Top 9 and I was immediately drawn to the photo — I love that shot how the guac is practically spilling out of the photo into my mouth :) Absolutely breathtaking shot — actually all of these are! Blessed to know such talented people like you, have a great weekend!

    Wow do these wonton cups look & sound amazing. Though I currently have no plans to watch the super bowl, I kind of want to make these anyways. I’ll cheer for the Steeler’s though, just for your godfather who inspired this post. As a thank you, for such delicious recipes being posted :)

  • http://muchtomydelight.blogspot.com jenn

    I love this idea and these combos sound right up my alley! Almost makes me want to go watch the Superbowl…I said almost. I’d probably just whip these up at home and eat them by myself while everybody else cheered for…whoever’s playing the football game.

    These look amazing! Great post! :)

  • http://squirrelbread.wordpress.com heather

    Great minds… I was thinking of doing wonton cups as well. We’ve made them once before, using a Thai chicken salad filling that was made from pulled roasted chicken, scallions, sesame oil, fish sauce, lime juice, roasted peanuts, slivered cabbage, and a couple other things. Quite tasty and fun to eat. It was just my fiancée and I at the time, but I can imagine these going over well with a crowd! And you have some really delicious fillings here.

    Cheers,

    These came out really well. I think i’ll have to try these at my next cookout.

    These are beautiful. I vote avocado/tomato but that’s just be, an avocado addict. I love that your grandfather is such a fan. Sadly our teams (giants and saints) are out but that may make the superbowl less celebratory.
