Jalapeno Cream Cheese filled Wontons

Jalapeno Cream Cheese filled Wontons

When Ryan asked me to make him some game day snacks for the Seahawks game last week, I had not been to the store yet so I did not have much to work with. What I did have was one jalapeno, wonton wrappers and some cream cheese. What I ended up with were little bites of cream cheese bliss.

Jalapeno Cream Cheese filled Wontons

Print Recipe
Makes 12 Prep Time: Cook Time:

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 jalapeno, diced. (You can also remove the seeds inside if you would like to cut down on the heat a bit)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • Little bowl of water for sealing wonton wrappers
  • Canola oil for frying

Instructions

1

Preheat Canola oil in 2 qt pot. You will want about an inch of oil in the pot.

2

Mix cream cheese, jalapeno, garlic powder, white pepper and salt in a small bowl

3

Lay wonton wrapper on a flat surface. Place 1/2 teaspoon of filling into the center of the wonton. Use your finger to wet the sides of the wrapper. Then carefully pull opposite sides together to make a pointed top. Be sure to seal all sides, you don't want any of the cream cheese coming out while you are frying them.

4

Once the oil is hot enough, add the wontons carefully. Fry until golden brown.

5

Serve with plum sauce (you can find this in the Asian food aisle of your local grocery store).

Notes

Enjoy!

    If only the Seahawks were as good as these wontons.

  • Kirby!

    Wontons are the ultimate crowd-pleaser… can’t be fried dough and cheese!!

  • Kirby: I totally agree! You can’t get much better than fried dough and cheese :) And about them being crowd-pleasers, I made these for my Super Bowl Party and they were gone before I had the chance to try them!

  • hungry gal

    These look delicious and I can just imagine the molton cream cheese followed with a hint of heat. I bet they aren’t low cal… ;)

  • haha sure they are low cal! I removed all the calories from the cream cheese before I mixed it with the jalapenos and from the oil before I fried them…did I forget that step in the recipe? ;-)

  • These look very similar to a product I’ve become obsessed with, I’m ashamed to admit it but the chilli cheese bites from Burger King *hangs head* These look so much better though, will definitely be trying them very soon…

    probably tomorrow!

  • Katie: haha its alright, everyone has to have their little guilty pleasure and those chili cheese bites actually sound pretty darn good. Maybe I’ll have to give them a try! :)

  • mssone

    can anyone please tell me if wonton wraps & eggroll wraps are one in the same or totally different wras?

  • Hi mssone- Wonton wrappers are much smaller than egg roll wrappers about 3 1/ inches. However other than that they are similar so you can cut them into the wonton size. Hope this helps!

  • Kim

    Does anyone know if these can be baked?

  • I would not recommend baking these. The wrappers would not crisp up before the cream cheese melted.
