Anyway, on to what's been cooking...
Chipotle Chicken Bites with Chipotle Mayo Dip
I guess I should start off by saying having found these won ton wrappers back a few months ago I've used them for about any use I can think of. And they are perfect! I found a recipe that talked about making phyllo dough chicken wraps or something and it used an avocado dip of some sort....but I've been dying to make this chipotle mayo dip that my good friend Ari gave to me so I botched this recipe and made my own, sweetness!
1 1/2 lb ground chicken
1 package of won ton wrappers (30) though you may not need all of them
1/2 onion chopped pretty fine
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese **optional for those lactose intolerant people :)
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped and seeded (for more spice & fire leave some seeds in)
salt & pepper to taste
The chipotle peppers in adobo sauce can be found in the international cooking asile with pasta and mexican food, small can.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl combine chicken, onion, cheese (if using it), garlic, salt & pepper, and chipotle peppers using some of the sauce in the can. Mix all together. Using the won ton wrappers add a small spoonful to the middle and fold up sides. I make it so it kind of looks like an envelope or a 4 sided pyramid?! Depending on how full you stuff them, make sure they close all the way, will depend how many wrappers you use. You can always get more wrappers or use more meat. This would probably work great using ground turkey as well. Put the bites on a greased cookie sheet and in the oven for about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
Chipotle Mayo Dip
You can add a dab of this inside the chicken bites or just use to dip with. This also goes great dipping fries, tator totes, etc. in!
Equal parts Mayo & Sour Cream (about 1/2 cup each)
2-3 chipotle peppers seeded and chopped (leave seeds in for more spice & fire)
garlic salt, about 1 tsp depending how much you like garlic
lemon juice, about 2 tablespoons worth
Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend. Wa-la! It is kind of a make-it-as-you-go type of recipe but I absolutely love it!
