These are crispy, cheese-filled appetizers. They can be prepared ahead of time and reheated in the oven until they sizzle before serving. Serve with salsa.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 pound pepper-jack cheese, finely shredded
- 1 (14 ounce) package won ton wrappers
- 1 cup vegetable oil for deep frying
Place 1 to 2 teaspoons of shredded cheese into the center of each wonton skin. Fold the top and bottom corners in toward each other and roll it up like a little egg roll. You will have to seal the wonton with a little water where the ends meet.
Heat oil in a deep pot to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C). Fry the wontons two or three at a time. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
