Ingredients

  • 36 won ton wrappers
  • 1.5 lbs chicken cut into small cubes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Cup black beans
  • 1 Cup corn
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 Cup loosely packed cilantro leaves minced (+ more for garnish, if desired)
  • 1 Cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • sour cream *optional

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Mince the cilantro and set aside. Cut the chicken into small cubes and season with salt and pepper.
  • Line the muffin pan with won ton wrappers to form the cups. Bake for 5 minutes, remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5-7 minutes, until done. Stir in the black beans, corn, chili powder and cumin. Remove from heat and stir in the cilantro.
  • Add about a tablespoon of the chicken mixture to each won ton wrapper. Top with a pinch of cheese and return to the oven for 5-7 minutes until the won ton wrappers just start to turn light brown.
  • Top with sour cream and extra cilantro, if desired.
