Baked Spinach Artichoke Won-ton Cups

Ingredients

  • 24 chilled wonton wrappers
  • 9 oz creamed spinach (frozen or freshly made)
  • 3-6 oz marinated artichoke hearts* (approx. 1/4-1/2 cup chopped)
  • 2 oz softened cream cheese (cut into 6-8 cubes)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • spray oil (avocado, olive, etc…)

Instructions

    1. Pre-heat oven to 365 degrees F.
    2. Next grab your creamed spinach and warm using package instructions. Drain your artichokes and chop into small pieces. Combine with spinach.
    3. Gently place won-ton squares in a mini-muffin tray spritzed with spray oil. For extra crunch you can also lightly spray the won-ton wrappers themselves with a little oil.
    4. Bake for 5 minutes to lightly crisp.
    5. Combine creamed spinach with your trio of cheeses and season with garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
    6. Spoon spinach mixture into lightly baked won-ton cups and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges of your won-ton cups are toasty and golden brown with a hot, melty spinach dip center.
    7. Dive in while they’re hot!

Recipe Notes

* For the artichokes, adjust amount based on preference. I like using 1/2 cup so there’s lots of marinated artichoke in every bite of spinach dip. If. you prefer less or a more mild flavor, try 1/4 cup. Alternatively, these can 100% be made without artichoke hearts if you prefer – add a little extra garlic or some sautéed shallots/onion in their place.

No creamed spinach? No problem! Simply thaw/heat a 9 oz package of frozen chopped spinach and combine it with 4 oz softened cream cheese or a bit extra based on your ideal spinach-to-cheese ratio.

Fresh minced garlic may be used in place of garlic powder if needed. Simply sauté it briefly in a little oil/butter to soften and release the fragrant aromatics of the garlic.
