Crunchy Buffalo Chicken Cups

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 mL) corn chips
  • 6 oz (175 g) sharp cheddar cheese (1 1/2 cups/375 mL grated)
  • 2   green onions
  • 1 cup (250 mL) finely diced cooked chicken breast
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) hot cayenne pepper sauce (see cook’s tip)
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) sour cream
  • 1/4 cup (about 1 oz/30 g) crumbled blue cheese
  •  Additional hot cayenne pepper sauce for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Generously spray wells of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan with nonstick cooking spray.  

  2. Finely process corn chips in Manual Food Processor. Grate cheddar using Microplane® Adjustable Coarse Grater. Add 1 cup (250 mL) of the cheddar to processor; process until cheese is incorporated. 

  3. Spoon about 1 tbsp (15 mL) chip mixture into each well of pan and lightly press to flatten using Mini-Tart Shaper. Bake 8-10 minutes or until cups are bubbly and edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool 3-4 minutes. 

  4. Meanwhile, thinly slice green onions using Utility Knife; set aside 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the green tops for garnish.  

  5. Combine remaining green onions, chicken, hot cayenne pepper sauce, sour cream, blue cheese and remaining ½ cup (125 mL) cheddar in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 30-60 seconds or until mixture is warm and cheese is slightly melted.  

  6. Release cups from pan using cleaning tool of Garlic Press and place onto Stackable Cooling Rack. Spoon about 1 level tbsp (15 mL) filling into each cup. Drizzle with additional hot cayenne pepper sauce, if desired. Garnish with reserved green onion tops.
