Go Team, GO EAT!

You will find when I am not designing or creating, I like cooking. So if you happen upon this blog and like to eat, I will try to sprinkle in some cooking fun. I am by no means a great cook, but I have hopes to one day be :) So back to the game theme...

Whatever team you are rooting for– the one thing you can count on is a table load of probably not so good for you snacks. Ahh, but it's for one night right? And Monday is a new day!

So, after much debate on what to bring to the Super Bowl gathering I thought why not wontons? With so many different choices of things you can make with wontons I decided to concoct my version of the crab rangoon since my kiddo loves it so, and since their was a bizzilion wrappers in a package I decided I would use the rest to make taco bites. If you find you still have time before the game and want to do this here are the recipes:

Taco Bites

1/2 package of wonton wrappers
1/2 section of cream cheese block
1 pound taco seasoned meat filling (I confess I use veggie crumbles and no one notices, really!)
2 cups taco shredded cheese

Spray with Pam a 24 mini muffin pan. Place a wonton wrapper in each muffin hole, push down to make a shell.

Mix warm seasoned meat with 1/2 section of cream cheese, you can get creative and add sliced black olives or those spicy pickled green things. Spoon tablespoon portions into each shell. Sprinkle shredded cheese over each and bake at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes.

Top with a dollop of sour cream (yes, we like our dairy) and your favorite salsa.

With the other half of the wonton package, I have made Crab Rangoon.

Crab Rangoon Triangles

1 block of Cream Cheese, softened
1 can Star Kist Lump Crabmeat
1 T. Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 Tsp. White Pepper
1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder
20 wonton wrappers
Oil to fry
Egg white for sealing wrappers
Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce

Mix all the ingredients EXCEPT wonton wrappers in a bowl. Place a wonton wrapper and run with your finger on all edges with egg white. Place a bit more than a teaspoon of filling inside wrapper, fold over and seal edges to form a triangle. Place each made triangle between two damp paper towels on a plate. When done place in fridge till you are ready to fry.

Fry each about 2 minutes in a pan of hot oil till golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sweet and sour sauce.

Walla, let the game begin!
