Chicken Fajita Wonton Cups

The holidays are all about entertaining family and friends and to me that means serving up some good eats! I whipped up a batch of Chicken Fajita Wonton Cups to enjoy as a holiday appetizer. They turned out beautifully and I can’t wait to share them with all of you!

They are a bit of a Mexican/Asian fusion theme. The crispy wonton cups serve as the perfect dish to eat saucy and spicy chicken fajitas. To save time, prepare the wonton cups ahead of time. You could also prep the chicken fajita mix prior to the gathering, but make sure you heat it up before you put it in the wonton cups. It tastes better hot.

Set out some toppings like shredded cheese, salsa, sour cream and green onions so your guests can top their cups the way they like. I prefer mine with the works with a whole lot of flavour going on.
