Jalapeno Popper Wontons

WARNING: Might want to double up on this recipe because once you pop one you won’t be able to stop, they’re delicious!

1 package refrigerated square wonton wrappers
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 jalapeños, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Vegetable oil for frying
Coarse salt


In a bowl, combine cream cheese, jalapeños, and cheddar cheese. Arrange wontons in a single layer on a baking sheet.
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.
Fry wontons in batches in hot oil until browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve warm.
