How to Make Spicy Cream Cheese Wontons
I am so excited with how these Spicy Cream Cheese Wontons came out! I have been working on making the filling just right for some time now. I love a little kick to my food, but don’t want it to be so overpowering that I can’t share it with the kids. Sriracha is my all time favorite hot sauce – we keep a huge bottle in the refrigerator as a go-to flavor enhancer – but sometimes a bit of sweet chili sauce is more of a crowd favourite.
I was excited to have my dad over to taste test these for me. Presented on a long plate with a warm, homemade wonton dip these little delights didn’t stay around long.
One quick note about frying food. Be sure you are flying in a pan or dutch oven that is deep enough. If you have a really shallow pan and are working with several inches of hot oil, splatters can really ruin the experience of making this yummy appetizer. Grab a spider strainer to drain each wonton completely.
Don’t be afraid to tweak the cream cheese filling too! What works for my tastes may not be perfect for yours. I know several of my friends have to make two separate batches of cream cheese filling for the spice lovers in their homes. Play around! That’s why I love cooking; There’s no “right” answer. Just good food.
