Turkey Wontons

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Have you been looking for a super easy, go-to appetizer recipe?  Well look no further! These Turkey Wontons are super easy and quite the crowd pleaser.  I made a large batch of them for the Super Bowl party we attended and they were the first thing to go!  Since I made a full batch, it made a ton of filling so I actually froze half of it and just used the rest this weekend.  It worked out perfectly, just had to pick up more wontons.  

These Turkey Wontons will be requested again and again, trust me.  

Musical Selection: Because of You by: 98 Degrees.  I can honestly say I listen to this while I am in the kitchen. 
Start by finely chopping up some olives.  I used a food processor for this.  Not sure why my pictures in this post are super blurry.  Sorry for that!
Combine the olives to fully cooked ground turkey breast.  I also chopped up an onion and added it to the turkey when I was cooking it.
Next, I added a can of diced green chiles.  This recipe is actually from my Auntie Geri and she uses a red pepper.  I forgot it and substituted green chiles instead and it worked great.  Use whatever you have.
Add some ranch dressing.
And cheddar cheese.
Give it a mix and the filling is done.
Next, line a mini muffin tin with wonton wrappers.  I trimmed mine by using a biscuit cutter.  If you don't have a mini muffin tin, you can make a larger version in a regular sized muffin tin and don't trim them.  I like the mini version though because then they are bite-sized.

Side note: wonton wrappers are found in the refrigerated dressing section of my store or by where the fresh cut up fruit and veggies are. Best best is to check in the produce area.
Fill with the turkey mixture and bake at 350 for about 8 minutes.
They will come out all cheese, gooey and crispy on the edges.  The perfect little bite. 

Turkey Wontons

1 pound ground turkey breast
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup black olives, chopped finely
1 small can green chiles or 1 red pepper
1 cup ranch dressing
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Brown the turkey meat with the chopped onion until the meat is fully cooked. 

Combine the turkey with the olives, chiles or red pepper, ranch dressing and cheese.  

If you are using a mini muffin tin, trim the wonton wrapper with a biscuit cutter. Line each muffin hole with a wonton wrapper.  Fill with the turkey filling. 

Place in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the filling is melted and the edges of the wontons are just starting to turn golden brown.
