Ingredients:  
1 lb chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut into small pieces
1 pkg wonton skins
Vegetable spray
1 pkg taco seasoning
c water
1 T butter
1 c ranch dressing
c red bell pepper, finely chopped (optional)
⅓ c black olives, finely chopped (optional)
1 c Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 c cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Spray mini muffin pans with vegetable spray.

Gently press wonton skins into each muffin cup, to form little baskets. Bake skins for 5-6 minutes or until lightly browned. When you remove from oven, be sure they are open, the flaps have a tendency to flop over. While they are still warm it is very easy to ease them open to form a basket.

In a large frying pan, heat 1 T butter. Add the chicken. Cook for 6-8 minutes, over medium heat, until browned and cooked through. Add taco seasoning and 1/4 c water, stir well. Cook over low heat 5 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Add Ranch dressing, cheese, olives and red pepper. Mix well.

Using a teaspoon, fill each wonton basket with the chicken mixture. Bake 4-5 minutes or until heated through.

Note: If making ahead of time, once cups are filled with filling refrigerate. Heat in a 350 oven until warmed through.
