Guacamole Wontons

Updated: Aug 26, 2019

Do you know how long it took me to perfect these? I feel like I am going to turn into a guacamole wonton hahah. I will say hot guacamole is actually not good. It is hard to find the right balance with the guacamole. I had first started with my signature guacamole, but the lime after it was warm, really did not taste good & so it was back to the drawing board. Then I made HUGE ones and that was just too much guac (( I know how can that be??)) but trust me it was. After that I decided we needed some cream cheese, cilantro & spice to help the guacamole stay scrumptious when heated. It took 4 tries to find the balance after that change and now HERE THEY ARE. They are going to become a new party favorite, not just at the pub :) YOU must do the dipping sauce-- it pairs perfectly with it!! ENJOY! These are fail proof now! Also gluten free depending on wonton wrappers of your choice :) However, I prefer the Nasoya wrappers!


Ingredients:

1 avocado

1/4 cup Brothers Salsa black bean corn salsa

2 tbsp chopped cilantro

1 tsp salt-- to taste

1/2 deseeded jalapeño chopped

1 glove garlic cut into about 3 to 4 pieces ( will get blended in processor)

1 6 oz package of shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

4 oz Organic Valley cream cheese

1 package of Nasoya wonton wrappers

Air fryer for 4-6 minutes at 370 degrees



Sauce:

Either a favorite sweet chili sauce of yours-- or the homemade sauce below--

1 tbsp sour cream

1 tsp sesame seed oil

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tsp cilantro

* salt to taste & mix ingredients throughly


Directions:

1. In a small bowl combine avocado, salsa, 1 tbsp chopped cilantro, salt & smash together into well combined. Then in food processor add the cream cheese, guacamole, jalapeño that is chopped and deseeded as well as the garlic cut into a few pieces. Process in the food processor into well combined. Next you will be wrapping up your wontons! Follow the steps below :)


2. Place a wonton square on the cutting board & scoop 1 1/2 tsp of filling into the center


3. Sprinkle a few pieces of chopped cilantro onto the filling


4. Sprinkle shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top of the filling & cilantro

5. Next fold the wonton wrapper in half & press down the wonton around the filling-- it is okay if some starts to squeeze out, just wipe away or eat it honestly hahah


6. Get a small glass bowl & add a little bit of water to it. With a pastry/basting brush or fingers start to wet the edges of the wonton so you can knead them together well


7. Begin to seal the edges as seen below, so that the mixture does not come out and press down well so it stays in place during baking.


8. Next add a little bit more water to the tips and fold them under to where they stick to the bottom as seen below


9. Place on the air fryer rack & bake at 370 degrees for 4-6 minutes. The first batch before the air fryer has been warmed up will take a little longer. I try to do about 2 minutes on each side or 3 minutes on each side and they will look like below! You can get them as crispy as you want, but the edges getting brown and the middle firm has been the best outcome I have found. DO NOT USE OIL. The avocado excretes oil & there is no need on these :)




AND there ya have it! Let me tell you I am very excited to finally have these babies in your hands and you to love them! It has been a long time coming :) Thank you for looking at this scrumptious recipe!! Remember to follow me @honestfoodie_blog and #honestgrubhonestfoodie to let me know what you are making!
