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 WontonsPrint Recipe
- 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
Preheat Canola oil in 2 qt pot. You will want about an inch of oil in the pot.
Mix cream cheese, jalapeno, garlic powder, white pepper and salt in a small bowl
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.
Once the oil is hot enough, add the wontons carefully. Fry until golden brown.
Serve with plum sauce (you can find this in the Asian food aisle of your local grocery store).
