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.

How to Make Chipotle Shrimp Cups


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.)
