Some Treats...another part of Eat, Drink and be Merry

I get daily E-mails with recipes from Fine Cooking, of the magazine with the same name, and All Recipes.

I have found All Recipes to be a great site, no matter what you’re looking for. The recipes that come in the newsletter are just a tease to what can be found on the website. I also get regular recipes from Kraft Canada.

For my brother’s birthday bash in November I served an appetizer called Mexican Fiesta Bites. These were a big hit, my sister-in-law, who is an excellent cook, liked them and even asked for the recipe.

Mexican Fiesta Bites

24 Won Ton wrappers
1 cup cooked crumbled Italian   sausage
½ cup Salsa
¾ cup Kraft Tex Mex Shredded Cheese
¼ cup sour cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place one won ton wrapper in each of 24 mini muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray, with edges of wrappers extending over tops of cups. Bake 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine sausage and salsa.

Spoon sausage mixture into won ton cups. Bake 10 minutes or until filling is heated through and edges of cups are golden brown. Top with cheese; bake 1 to 2 minutes or until melted.

Top with sour cream.

Won ton wrappers can be found in the produce section of your supermarket.

I found another similar recipe, also from Kraft, with a variation on the filling.

 ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup chopped pepperoni
½ cup Kraft Rancher’s Choice dressing
¼ cup chopped green peppers
¼ cup chopped red peppers

Prepare the won ton wrappers as above, and bake 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients.

Fill won ton cups with cheese mixture. Bake 6 to 8 min. or until cheese is melted.

The number of fillings is unlimited. Maybe a bit of cheddar cheese, browned ground beef and salsa for a Taco taste.

Or ham and Swiss cheese.

Maybe cooked chicken and cheese.
I don’t even want to think of the possibilities if you wanted this to be a dessert.
Ice cream, custards, mousse. Fruit.

Try the Mexican Fiesta Bites, I guarantee they’ll be a hit.
Here’s the website if you want more.
