This quick appetizer gets smoke and savor from commercial salsa. And it's made all the easier by baking purchased wonton wrappers in mini muffin tins instead of preparing a homemade pastry. You can make all the components the night before (store filling in the refrigerator and cups at room temperature), then heat the assembled cups in the oven just before serving.
