SOUTHWESTERN HUMMUS BAKED WONTON CUPS
I can’t believe that school is out in a week for us! This school year really flew. I am guessing it is because we have a new member in our family that takes a lot of time and energy. The days fly by when you are entertaining three little ones. You know what saves me some days when the 3 o’clock hunger sets in? An unofficial meal that I can give to my kids to tide them over until dinner. That in-between lunch and dinner pick-me-up. For a lot of people this occurs right after school when the kids get off the bus. You can have these Southwestern Hummus Baked Wonton Cups on hand to pop in the toaster oven.
An unofficial meal, like these wonton cups, makes a great everyday snack or appetizer. These are so satisfying it feels like meal. Sometimes I even like to set these out as I make dinner, because my kids always get cranky right around that time and start asking for food. With an unofficial meal there are no formal meal rules, like you have to sit at a table to eat, you get to be more relaxed and snack with your friends or family.
Not only do these Southwestern Hummus Baked Wonton Cups work great for an unofficial meal before dinner, they also make great finger food for after school, in between meal snacking, summer entertaining or tailgating when fall rolls around. If you haven’t tried making wonton cups they are super easy! If you asked me a year ago where to find wonton wrappers in my grocery store I wouldn’t have been known. But now I love them for these type of recipes! In my local grocery store they keep them in the salad area where the mixed greens are.
To make wonton cups you muffin tins in order to shape the wonton wrappers. You will spray the muffin tins with non-stick pray, place one wonton wrapper in the bottom of the muffin tin and then fill it with the filling, followed by another wonton wrapper placed the opposite way as the first one.
Lets talk about that filling! The best part of this recipe is the Sabra Supremely Spicy Hummus . It is fresh, healthy and creamy. The Supremely Spicy Hummus is one of my favorite Sabra hummus flavors. I am a huge fan of spice, so it just gets me excited. In today’s recipe is adds just the right amount of spice to pair with the black beans, corn and cheese. If you aren’t excited about spice you can easily use Sabra’s Classic Hummus, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus or Garlic Hummus. Honestly, most of their flavors would work great!
The best thing about these Southwestern Hummus Baked Wonton Cups is how versatile they are. You can really mix so many vegetables, beans or cheese options into your filling. For example, I have added bell pepper, kidney beans and green chiles in and it worked great. Once your wonton cups are done baking you can also top them with so many fun garnishes, like cilantro, green onion, tomatoes, salsa, jalapeños and more. Another fun idea that I like to incorporate is diced avocado as a garnish or a dollop of guacamole. This adds that cool, creamy texture to the top of the wonton cup.
If you are a vegetarian or trying to eat more plant based meals, these are for you! I love that there is no meat needed to make these satisfying. The mixture of beans, hummus, corn and cheese will leave your stomach happy and you will feel ready to tackle the rest of your to-do list or that elaborate dinner you have planned for your family.
