Chipotle Shrimp Cups

I got this recipe from and modified it a wee bit. Nothing drastic. These are so good and a big hit when I make them for the Holidays! I will put the original recipe and then mark my changes behind the original. It was featured in Cooking Light JUNE 2004.

pinch tips: How to Peel & Devein Shrimp


3 dozen


15 Min


5 Min




wonton wrappers
cooking spray
1 1/2 c
(6 oz.) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar (or to your liking)
1 c
chopped cooked shrimp (i used old bay to cook in)
1 c
chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers (slight drained)
1 c
bottled chipotle salsa (i used mild salsa slightly drained)
1/2 c
chopped green onions

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Fit 1 wonton wrapper into each of 36 mini muffin cups coated with cooking spray, pressing the wrappers into sides of cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Keep wontons in muffin cups.
Combine cheese and remaining ingredients, and spoon about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture into each wonton cup. (I used a 1 tbls. scoop to put into cups.) Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from muffin cups. Serve immediately. (If taking to a gathering, I leave my wontons in the muffin cups for transport on a 1/2 sheet pan.)
