Jalapeno Popper Wontons

I love these crispy little wontons. I first tried them in Chinese restaurants filled with cream cheese and crab meat and thought they were delicious. These are easy and yummy as a side or appetizer.

Dovetailing Tip: Prepare the Jalapeno Pepper Wontons with the remaining wrappers from Meal 1.

Yield: 30 wontons
Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


30 refrigerated square wonton wrappers
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 jalapeño peppers, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
vegetable oil for frying
coarse salt


1. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, jalapenos, and cheddar cheese. Arrange wontons in a single layer on a baking sheet.

2. Add 1 teaspoon of the filling to the center of each wonton (don't overfill them). Dip your fingers in a bowl of water and run your wet fingers around all edges of each wonton. Fold the wontons over the filling, pinching the edges to seal to make a triangle and removing any air bubbles.

3. Fry wontons in batches in hot oil until browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve warm.
