So we have all been involved in a little over indulging this holiday, and are probably starting to think about how we are going to look in that hot sequin dress on New Years Eve. Here are a few simple, delicious, and fabulous appetizers to help kick off your start to a healthy new year!
Won Ton Tacos:
½ c of your favorite salsa 1-bag cowl slaw veggies (carrot and cabbage.)
1 container Asian sesame dressing 1 T bottle chipotle Tabasco ¼ c chopped fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray the inside and outside walls of a deep square or rectangular baking pan with nonstick spray. Evenly drape the wonton wrappers over the pan’s walls on a diagonal, making triangle-shaped “shells.” (Use two pans, if needed, to keep wontons from overlapping.) Bake until just crispy enough to hold their shape, about 3 minutes. Remove pan from the oven, but leave oven on. Carefully remove wontons and gently open to form “taco shells.” Set aside.
In a bowl, combine coleslaw mix, cilantro, 1/3 c dressing, and chipotle. Mix well; set aside
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute the shredded chicken among the shells, followed by the slaw, about 1 tbsp. of each per shell. Lay the filled shells gently on their sides on the baking sheet. Spray the shells lightly with nonstick spray. Bake until warm and crunchy, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly and then serve!
