When I was younger I hated spinach dip! Like really hated it. We were not friends and whenever I saw it I looked at it with scorn. I remember thinking how bitter it was and how anyone could eat it and like it. As you may have guessed my tastes buds have dramatically changed and now I can’t get enough of the stuff. Seriously, I can’t get enough! I could eat a whole bowl by myself and I wouldn’t regret it one bit. Nope, not at all. I know I’d probably be judged, but I would be in such gastronomic bliss that I wouldn’t even care.
Well, with this recipe I took the deliciousness of spinach dip and brought it to a smaller scale and included a crispy wonton cup, free of charge. Trust me, you’ll thank me later. I loves these so much because the wonton cup is nice and crispy and when you have you first bite the spinach and cheese oozes of the shell. Um, yes please.
Now, if you only wanted to make spinach dip and discard the wonton cups you totally could and I wouldn’t blame and/or judge you one bit! Keep the dip in bowl, add more cheese and top it off with sour cream and you’re good to go. Buuuttttt…. If you go the extra step to fill the wontons and get them nice and crispy you won’t regret it. This recipe is completely versatile so you could make any changes that you wanted. For more of a spicy kick, you can add jalapeños. It can also easily be doubled if you need to make a large amount. I love these spinach dip wonton cups because they bring the deliciousness of spinach dip to a portable cup which is perfect for a snack or as an appetizer at a party.
