When all the cream cheese mixture is gone, place the wontons in the fridge and let them chill out for about 15 minutes.
Time to fry! No need to deep fry, just about an inch of oil in the pan and fry on either side for about a minute. That's really all you're going to need.
After taking them out of the oil, sprinkle on some salt, and try to not scarf them down before they are cool.
Jalapeno Popper Wontons
Found these babies at Key Ingredient!
1 package refrigerated wonton wrappers, room temperature
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
2 jalapenos, minced
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
Vegetable oil, for frying
In a large bowl, cream together minced jalapenos, monterey jack cheese and cream cheese. Place a large dollop, about a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on one side of a wonton wrapper. Moisten each edge of the wonton and fold over. Make sure all four sides are completely sealed, and then repeat with each wonton. Place the ready wontons on a sheet pan and place it in the fridge for 15 minutes. While the wontons are in the fridge, heat about 1 inch of oil in a large skillet. After 15 minutes, drop wontons in batches and fry on either side until crispy and brown. Drain on a paper towel and season with salt. Enjoy!
