It’s September which can only mean one thing. Football season is now here!

Well, it actually starts in one week but we can have all of our tailgating needs ready and prepared before it all starts so I have partnered with Weber Grills and Eat Shrimp to bring you the most epic appetizer ever.

Now the kind folks over at Weber Grills sent me the Weber Q 1200 Portable Gas Grill, a tabletop powerhouse that can withstand frequent use and transport for all of your grilling needs, which is obviously a must for football season. And this grill will take your tailgating to the next level, with this perfectly grilled cajun shrimp nestled on top of a crisp wonton cup filled with guacamole.

Yes, there’s a lot happening here but it’s such an easy recipe, I promise. You can even bake the wonton cups ahead of time, and if you’re really short on time, you can also use store-bought guacamole.

Either way, no one will be watching the game when these babies are served!

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Delicious and super E A S Y!!

  2. Substituted Tortilla Scoop chips for Wantons. Turned out great with less work.❤️

  3. Can these be served cold?

  4. Hi- I dont exactly understand what you mean in step two regarding leaving a center in the cup. Please explain why

  5. How far in advance can you make the wonton cups? And how best to store them if I’m going to assemble the following day?

  6. Hello! These were in fact delicious! Thank you for sharing. What type of wrappers did you buy and from where? 🙂

  7. Can these be made and assembled ahead?

    • Unfortunately, I just don’t think the wontons will hold up – but as always, please use your best judgment.

  8. Do the wonton wrappers form a flat no-leak bottom so the guacamole doesn’t seep through? Looks beautiful!

  9. Gorgeously and deliciously presented! WOW.

  10. Oh my! Just found your website and I’m super excited to try so many of your recipes! These Shrimp Wonton Cups will definitely be on the table for the first game!

  11. Epic appetizer is right…I can’t wait to try these!

  12. This is the perfect finger food! And all the flavours and textures going on here. Can’t wait to try these!

  13. Hey! Love your blog! I have never had good luck with ANY mini muffin cup recipes in my non-stick muffin pan. No matter how much I spray or oil, things always get stuck. I bought a silicone mini muffin pan. Do you think the wonton wrappers would get crispy with it or do you have some other tip for getting things out of a mental one smoothly?

    Thanks!

    • Casey, I have never used a silicone pan so I cannot really speak for that but the wonton wrappers should come out very easily even with a little bit of nonstick spray.

  14. Three of my favorite things combined: shrimp, guacamole, and Cajun anything!!! These look divine!!
