Hot Artichoke Dip Wontons

I had been stalking Fighting Illini.com for this week’s game time. Knowing I had to work and the thought of missing another game this season, due to work, may have resulted in my resignation. Rest assured, the game is an afternoon game and I should make it home by kick off. Praise…the…Lord. On high.

I’m a hockey-playing, stereotypical, die-hard college football fan through and through. Don’t mess with my game time in any way, shape, or form. Including game time grub, obviously.

After I made Wonton Chicken Tacos for Gina and Nick a few months back, I’ve been curious as to what other unique little goodies could be piled into a wonton cup and considered a tasty, low-calorie appetizer.

I have Pinterest to thank for this one. Thanks, P. Bonus for this recipe’s inclusion of mayonnaise and artichoke, two of my favorite foods…all for 44 calories a pop. Should I mention that #44 is my hockey jersey number? Word.

    I’ll be honest, I only watch football for the food. And when it’s as tasty as this, who can really blame me!

    Artichoke dip is a favorite of mine but it’s really a killer when it comes to calories…this sounds like the perfect way to indulge in a controlled kind of way!
