Artichoke Tartlettes

recipe courtesy of the fabulous Miss Julissa!

olive oil flavored cooking spray
16 pieces wonton wrapper(s)
1/4 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
4 oz fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp sweet red pepper(s), chopped
7 oz canned artichoke hearts, without oil, drained and chopped
1/4 cup parsley, fresh, sprigs

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 16-hole mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Gently press 1 wonton wrapper into each muffin hole, allowing ends to extend above cups. Coat edges of wrappers with cooking spray and set aside. Combine cheeses, cayenne pepper and mustard in a medium bowl; mix well. Stir in red pepper and artichoke hearts; spoon about 1 teaspoon of cheese mixture into each muffin cup. Bake until cheese mixture is set and edges of wrappers are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Those look really cool. I make wontons quite a bit and often have leftover wrappers. I'll have to make sure to get some artichokes in next time so I have use for them.
