Chicken, Mango & Avocado Wonton Cups

Chicken, Mango & Avocado Wonton Cups - a simple, colorful and flavorful finger food!Is it weird that I’m already looking forward to January? Sure, it’s my birthday month, but more so than that – it’s the best snackin’ month of the year! There’s New Years Day (great snacking and football day) and the Super Bowl (same deal) (OK, the Super Bowl is technically a few days into February, but who’s keeping track?).

Chicken, Mango & Avocado Wonton Cups - a simple, colorful and flavorful finger food!You may recognize these cute little wonton cups from when I made variations of them for a cocktail hour and a sangria party. Ever since Angela from Joyously Domestic turned me on to their charms and endless possibilities, my love for wonton cups has been, well, endless. These chicken, mango & avocado wonton cups couldn’t be simpler – just layer in chunks of chicken, chopped sweet mango, luscious avocado and sweet corn. Drizzle with a creamy homemade herb dressing or use your favorite bottled ranch dressing. Bring on snackin’ season!

    Here here to January babies and snacking! I love having cocktail parties with appetizers galore-thanks for this idea. I need to find wontons-its crazy since I’m in China and all, but I have only seen the dumpling lady as she whips out dumplings at the market…I wonder if she’d sell me some…

      Yay, so glad you approve ;) I’m still a bit touch-and-go with mango. I’m not a huge fan of it just on it’s own, as a piece of fruit. But I do like it to add sweetness to dishes. But also – it’s a pain in the butt to “butcher.” haha. So yeah, mango and I have a rocky relationship.
