Mini Veggie Cups

These veggie cups are a really delightful, low calorie appetizer. I always keep ready made wonton skins in my fridge or freezer so I can bake them up and make this appetizer in a jiffy.

Feel free to experiment with different kinds of ingredients for the fillings. You can add or take away anything you like and adjust it according to your tastes.  The wonton skin cups can be made up to a day ahead and kept in a sealed container.
