Jalapeno Popper Wontons
I kind of feeling like a genius for thinking up this combo. Jalapeno popper anything is SO good. (Taquitos anyone?) Instead of leaving this in dip form, I filled up some crispy wontons with it! Wontons happen to be a very tasty carrying case for dips.
I’ve been a bad food planner lately. I bought the wonton wrappers with no intention of making Crab Rangoon, and the jalapenos were just sitting in my fridge, being bored. And I always have cheese, (duh.) …so it all just kinda fell together- sa-weet! Let’s just hope that keeps happening.
I want to talk about random food combos that are awesome.
Wanna!? I’ll start.
Grilled cheese dipped in syrup. Like pancake syrup. OMG- so good.
Let’s see, what else…American cheese wrapped around a dill pickle. To die for.
Okay how bout this one. Brewer’s Yeast flakes sprinkled on popcorn. –I eat that pretty much every day.
Okay, now it’s your turn- I gave away my weird ones, it’s only fair. There’s no judgement here, let’s hear it 😀
Jalapeno Popper Wontons
Crispy wontons filled with warm, Cheesy jalapeno dip. Served spicy or mild, these crunchy snacks are easy to make and fun to eat.
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix
- 2-4 jalapeno peppers, diced, seeds removed
- 2 cups sour cream
- 2 tablespoon onion, finely diced
- 1 tablespoon parsley
- 1 (12 oz.) package Wonton wrappers – Found in the produce section with the refrigerated items
Mix all ingredients together and use a teaspoon to scoop the dip onto the middle of each wonton.
Moisten the edges of the wonton with a little bit of water. Fold in a triangle and press to seal- removing air from the inside.
Take the left and right unsealed sides and pull them up, attaching them to the existing seal on the top. Then press along the edges to close any areas where the filling could be exposed to air (You can really fold a number of different ways as long as the seals are firm) Repeat, setting aside on a plate.
Place carefully into preheated deep fryer, cooking a few at a time for a few minutes each, until golden brown. Take out and place on paper towel to drain excess grease. (Although I personally much prefer the deep fried method, you may also bake in oven at 350 degrees F oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown)
Serve hot with dipping sauce if desired, (ranch, anyone!?)
