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.

Hot Artichoke Dip Wontons slightly adapted from I Was Born To Cook

1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts in water, drained and chopped
1/2 cup light olive oil-based mayonnaise
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

pinch of salt
3 garlic cloves, chopped
few shakes of hot sauce
22 square wonton wrappers

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine all ingredients (except wontons) in a medium bowl.

Line a mini muffin tin with wonton wrappers, inserting them gently to take the shape of a small cup. Fill each cup with about 2 teaspoons dip mixture. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until heated through and the wonton tips have browned. Yield: 22 bite-sized appetizers.

    I never even tried artichokes until my roommate at the time made a hot chicken artichoke dip. SO GOOD. Think I may have taken a spoon to it a few times. So having the wontons to automatically break it up a little may do me some good… 😉

    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!

    Even though you are a Illini fan I am totally with you. Love these dip cups and I HATE when things get in the way of game day!

    We served something similar to this at our wedding! It was a big hit. I’m pretty excited to give this a try and take a walk down memory lane 🙂

    I know I’ve said this many times, but this may be the best idea I’ve ever heard.

    I love wonton wrappers. So versatile!

    These are adorable but look so good I’d probably eat a dozen without even realizing!
