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?).
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!
