Do you ever make a recipe and love it so much that you start trying to figure out all of the ways you can make it with other ingredients? Happens to Melinda and I all the time.

A few weeks ago we were frying up crab rangoons for a recipe we shared on Real Housemoms, and we loved them so much that Melinda started trying to figure out anything and everything we could stuff into a wonton and fry. We made these pizza wontons that the kids loved…ok, ok, we may have eaten just as many as the kids, but seriously guys they were awesome, and we even stuffed a few wontons with Nutella (recipe coming soon!).

Melinda was just about to load up some wontons with buffalo chicken dip (yep she really does always have some in her fridge!) when I put the brakes on. Don’t give me that look, I already got it from Melinda. Of course buffalo chicken dip would be amazing fried inside of a wonton, but at the rate we were going you guys were only going to see fried wontons for a whole month, LOL. Instead we took those wonton wrappers and used them in a different way. We pressed each wonton into the cup of a mini muffin tin, then filled them with the buffalo chicken dip and topped them with a little cheese.

They baked in the oven at 350F for 10-12 minutes. We just kept an eye on them and pulled them out when the wonton wrapper was golden brown and the cheese was melted. When they were done we let them cool for a few minutes then pulled them out of the muffin tin and dug in.

These spicy, cheesy, bites of buffalo chicken were the bomb-diggity (yep I just said that)! While I’m sure a fried wonton would be awesome too I like these better because you get more buffalo chicken and that is the best part. These buffalo chicken cups are perfect for game day, party appetizers, or even just a simple, fun, lunch!
