This recipe may seem a bit involved but it is SOOooo worth it!! The Boar's Head Chipotle Gouda pushed the flavor over the top!
This is my twist on a couple different recipes I have in my collection. These would be great as appetizers for football game or a party. Try them as the bites or roll them up in egg roll wrappers and dip them in a spicy sour cream based dip. SO VERY GOOD!! Well worth the effort!! (if you can't find Boar's Head Chipotle Gouda cheese use any spicy cheese that you like but try for the gouda-- it makes the dish!)

How to Make Chicken Fajita Bites

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a crock pot, place chicken, onion, peppers, chicken broth, taco seasoning, chili powder, and paprika; cook on low for 5-6 hours or until chicken is cooked and tender.
  • 2Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a mini muffin pan generously with nonstick spray.
  • 3Drain away liquid (if desired, reserve for a different purpose), separate chicken from veggies. Shred chicken; set aside. Place veggies in a food processor or blender and puree. In a bowl, combine chicken and puree; mix well.
  • 4Shred Gouda. Carefully press wonton wrapper into greased bowl of mini muffin pan. Fill with shredded chicken mixture and top with Gouda. Repeat for entire pan. (<---picture shows a larger size made from egg roll wrappers in an average size muffin pan-- takes longer to cook and somewhat awkward to eat in this size.)
  • 5Bake for 12-16 minutes until wontons are a crisp, golden brown, and cheese is bubbly. Remove from pan, top with shredded lettuce and a dollop of sour cream. Serve.
  • 6*** if making the rolls using egg roll wrappers, roll as directed on package. Place seems side down on greased cookie sheet. Spray rolls with nonstick spray or brush lightly with olive oil. Bake @ 400 degrees F for 10-14 minutes.

Chicken is my go-to when I just can't figure out what to make for dinner. Whenever I find myself wondering what to make, I grab a package at the market...
