Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat both sides of the Wonton wrap with the oil, put two wraps together and press them into a 12 muffin cups. Make sure that the bottom are as flat as possible.


Bake the Wonton wraps until golden and crispy for about 10 minutes. Let cool completely.


In a bowl, stir together the softened cream cheese, goat cheese, basil pesto, garlic, salt and pepper. Carefully, fold the diced avocado into the cheese mixture. Scoop the Basil Avocado among the Wonton cups. Garnish with the Chives.

Cooks' note:
*The Basil Pesto can be made ahead of time. I usually have extra pesto in my freezer. You can use the herb of your liking.

Very simple preparation, needing the left-over breads at home. This food can also make an excellant party dish and kid pleaser. The masala filled inside, can be anything of cook's choice. Here I prepared kheema with dried herbs, cheese and white sauce.
