Crispy Southwestern Wontons Recipe

Whenever we go out to eat, I’m always looking for something crispy and fried.  These tasted just like something I would order!  My husband was so impressed!  They have a delicious cheesy southwestern ranch filling.  Mmm Mm Mm!
These would also work great as appetizers or finger food for a party!
Crispy Southwestern Wontons Recipe:
(Recipe from Kevin and Amanda)

1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup frozen corn kernals
1/4 cup canned black beans, drained
5 oz (1 cup) chicken, shredded
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp (1/2 pkg) dry ranch dressing
24 wonton wrappers
canola or vegetable oil for frying

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and salt and saute for 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and cook for 5 more minutes. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add corn, beans, and chicken and stir to combine. Move the chicken mixture to a bowl and season with pepper, then stir in cheese and dry ranch dressing. Begin heating about 1/2 inch of canola or vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, scoop 1 teaspoon of chicken mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper. Rub some water on two sides of the wrapper, then fold over to firmly seal, forming a triangle, and gently press out any extra air pockets. When the oil is hot, place 6 wontons at a time into oil. Cook about 1 minute per side until golden and crispy.

Makes 24 wontons, or 3 dinner-sized servings. Nutritional Information for this recipe can be found at

    These were excellent! I even made extra filling and save some to put into Tortillas for lunch! It was fantastic both ways. We had some wontons left over, and while they aren’t as crispy after being in the fridge, the filling is even better after it sits a day or so! YUM!
