Jalapeño and cream cheese? A match made on earth! I call these wontons as I use wontons wrappers, original wontons are filled with minced pork and prawns. These are such an easy and tasty appetiser or snack! 

I would fry these not long before serving, as the wonton wrappers would get limp due to the cream cheese. You can make it a few hours before hand, but be sure to cover it with a damp paper towel to not dry out the wonton wrappers. The wrappers are sealed with a mixture of cornflour and water to ensure it does not open up while frying. Make sure that the wonton wrappers are gently held, to not make holes or tears.

Jalapeño Cream Cheese Wontons

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Jalapeños, chopped
  • 1 cup Cream Cheese
  • To taste Salt
  • 25 Wonton Wrappers
  • For frying Peanut Oil

Directions:

  1. Mix cornflour and water. Set aside. This is used for sealing the wonton wrappers.
  2. Mix jalapeños with cream cheese and salt.
  3. Take one wonton wrapper and fill it with about 2 tsp of jalapeño cream cheese mixture.
  4. Dip a finger in cornflour mixture and run it across the wrapper. Fold to make a triangle or desired shape.
  5. Gently press out any air pockets from the inside to avoid it the wontons from bursting while frying.
  6. Deep fry till golden brown.

Tip:

  • Keep a good eye on the wontons while frying. They tend to get bubbly inside even with pressing out air pockets. 
  • You can try to bake these but the one’s that I have tried so far have not produced good results as to frying them.
  • Add bacon…lots of it.
  • Cups to Grams conversions

Enjoy!
