These little bites are actually quite hearty with a refried bean and green chile filling contrasted by fresh salsa and a pop of green onion. All this goodness is contained by a crisped wonton wrapper and perfectly sized for party munching!
I’m telling you upfront – it’s all about the salsa here. Fresh salsa is what puts the fiesta in these fiesta bites. Bad salsa = No fiesta. Got it? Mmkay, good because we want fiesta and lots of it!
Fiesta Bites; Recipe or Not
Makes 24 bites
1 can refried beans
1 small can diced green chiles
Fresh salsa (I love the Pioneer Woman’s recipe, get it here!)
Diced green onion (a couple tablespoons should do)
1 pkg of 24 wonton wrappers
The Prep: Preheat oven to 350° and spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Carefully press each wonton wrapper into the cups of the mini muffin pan, make sure the edges don’t fold in. Mix the the refried beans and green chiles and spoon the bean mixture into each wonton wrapper cup. You may need to press down to the get the bean mixture to the bottom of the cup and the cups should be fairly full. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the wonton wrappers start to turn brown. Let the bites cool for a few minutes, then spoon salsa on the tops of each one and sprinkle with green onion. Enjoy!
Notes: I ended up with some leftover bean mixture and suggest making bean burritos if you have any left – delish!
