This is a fabulous appetizer; it does take a little time to prepare, but the taste is well worth it. If you want to freeze them for later use, they turn out just as good; just pop them in the freezer after filling the cups and then bake a bit longer then in the original recipe.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Line each cup a mini-muffin pan with a wonton wrapper, carefully pressing each into the shape of a cup. Take care to not tear the wrapper as they will tear easily.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer 'cups' to a baking sheet; repeat until remaining wontons are all baked.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned completely, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Set sausage aside to cool.

  • Stir cooled sausage, Colby cheese, green onions, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, and ranch salad dressing together in a bowl; spoon into the wonton cups.

  • Bake in oven until cheese has melted and is beginning to bubble, 15 to 20 minutes.

These are delicious and originally found this recipe from Hidden Valley Ranch website years ago. Everyone ALWAYS ask me to make these for family gatherings! It might not sound good but you wont be able to stop eating these things! I add 1 (2.25oz) can of olives and chop those up and add them to the mix even olive haters don't notice that olives are in the recipe but it gives the recipe a little salty punch that it really needs. I add a variety of bell peppers (green red orange yellow) to the mix to liven up the color of the appetizer. I also use almost 1 cup of the ranch dressing so they don't dry out when cooking. ENJOY!

I made this for a party. Since everyone in our group likes things spicy I added some diced jalapeños and some cayenne pepper. Everyone went crazy over them! I had a request to make it again for game day the very next day. I have a friend that is completely dairy-free so I made some using dairy-free ranch dressing and homemade almond cheese. Even the people that can have dairy loved the dairy-free version. I had a request to make it again for our next gathering. One of my friends suggested just combining everything into a small casserole dish and serving it as a dip with tortilla chips. I will try it that way next. Great recipie! Read More

These were great. I hadn't made them in awhile and looked up the recipe. This one added sauteed peppers and it made them even better than my old version! They are the first to disappear at a party! Read More
