Cinco de Mayo is just days away, and it’s tradition for my family to gather and have a delicious Mexican meal filled with all our favorite family recipes!

Unfortunately, my family will be out of town for the holiday, but I’m hoping we can still find some yummy Mexican food that day. 😉

In case you are preparing for some yummy recipes that day, I thought I’d share with one more recipe that would be perfect for May 5th! Today’s recipe is for Southwest Chicken Wonton Cups. I have never had them before but love wontons and thought a Mexican version would be great. Fortunately, these wontons turned out great, and I’ve already made them a few times in the last month. They’re filled with some of mu favorite ingredients – chicken, corn, black beans, cheese, sour cream, Italian Dressing and cilantro. Best part is they are so easy to make and don’t take too long!

Can’t beat quick and tasty recipes, right?!

Here’s what you’ll need to make these guys…

Place your wonton wrappers into a greased mini muffin pan.

You’ll want to bake these for 5 minutes first to make sure the whole wrapper bakes. Once the mixture is in there it doesn’t bake as well. 😉

The result?

DELICIOUS-NESS!!

We REALLY loved these Wonton Cups – they were so easy and so addicting.

As always, you can modify the ingredients to your liking and do less or more of any ingredient OR you can even add more like tomatoes or olives. 😉
