I've been making these for years. I've never taken this to a party w/o requests for the recipe! My husband doesn't tolerate pork well, so I often use hamburger meat and spice it up a lot. You definitely can do the 1st round of browning the wontons ahead and I've made the filling up to a day ahead. The filling is also excellent just as a dip w/ tortilla chips. I always serve sour cream and quacamole w/ it.
yummmmmmmm. I also used the mini phyllo shells. They went really well with the filling. Oh, and I used black olives instead of green ones (don't like the green ones).
I have a very similar recipe that I got from a lady at a wedding shower. She used black olives, no jalepeno, and a full cup of ranch dressing. They are very good and quite easy.
A hit! Prepped the wonton shells the day before and then filled them just before heating. Great combination of flavors and textures. EVERYONE loved them. Thanks for a new twist on the tired appetizer.
I have made this recipe for years now, and is a family favorite. I use the seriously hot Jimmy Dean sausage & omit the olives and I chop up 2 jalapeno's for an extra "kick".
I recently made these for a poker party and they were a huge hit!! I couldn't find any won ton cups at the local grocery store, so I used pre-made fillo dough shells, which turned out delicious (for this recipe I would suggest buying at least 4 packages-16 shells per package). Thank you so much for this recipe; I'll be sure to make these for my new year's party!
I have been making these for several years now, we love them! My husband will sit down and eat the whole batch by himself! You have to try these! Thanks Watkinslady30!
