1. Start by baking your wonton cups. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly brush your wonton wrappers with olive oil and push them into the cups of a muffin tin, pressing the bottoms down to make a defined cup. Bake until lightly browned, about 7-8 minutes. Set those aside to cool.

2. Next, make your sauce. Melt the butter in a skillet and then whisk in your flour, cooking until golden and bubbly. Next, slowly whisk in your bone broth a little at a time until it becomes a nice thick consistency. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir in the sour cream, cumin, salt, pepper & garlic powder, whisking to remove any lumps. Remove from heat and transfer mixture into a blender. Add avocado, cilantro, and the juice of your lime and blend until smooth and creamy (Be careful blending hot liquids! Be sure to remove the lid occasionally so the heat can escape). Set aside until needed.

3. Now you can move onto your tomato & mango mixture. Chop up your tomato and mango into little chunks. Put them in a bowl and drizzle some olive oil, salt & pepper and mix until combined. Set aside until needed.

4. Time to cook your shrimp! Remove the tails and pat dry with a paper towel. In a mixing bowl toss in your shrimp, salt, pepper, garlic powder & smoked paprika and mix until the spices evenly coat the shrimp. Heat a little olive oil on medium-high and add your shrimp once the oil is hot. Cook on each side for 1-2 minutes, getting a good sear. Remove from heat and get ready to assemble your cups!

5. Finally, you’re ready to assemble! Start with a wonton, then spoon some sauce into the cup. Next, scoop in some of the tomato/mango mixture. Top it with a shrimp and a little cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice. If you want to add spice you can add a thin slice of jalapeño on top. Time to set out your tray of delicious shrimp wonton cups and enjoy!
