Usually, when it is just my husband and I for dinner, I make a main dish and one side. I invited a couple people over the other night, and I felt like I needed another component to our meal. I looked in my fridge, and decided this was the perfect, quick side. I am sooo happy that I made these! It totally jazzed up our meal, and these wontons made my dinner way more impressive. The Avocado Sauce is outstanding, I could barely keep myself from covering every side of my wonton with it!
Cream Cheese Wontons with Avocado Dipping Sauce
Avocado Dipping Sauce
1 avocado, peeled and seeded
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1 Tbsp. (or to taste) lime juice
Zest from 1 limes
Salt, to taste
Place avocado, sour cream, lime juice and zest in the work bowl of a food processor and blend until very smooth. Adding salt, to taste.
Sweet Cream Cheese Fried Wontons
1 (8 ounce) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
15-20 wonton wrappers
1 cup water
oil (for frying)
Heat oil in a small pot, about 1 inch deep.
Meanwhile, beat egg, then mix with cream cheese and 1/2 cup of sugar.
Spoon about 1 Tbs. of mixture into center of wonton wrapper.
Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water and fold into whatever shape you desire, making sure to seal the edges so the cream cheese mixture doesn't escape during frying.
Drop into hot oil and brown both sides, this is a really quick process so watch them closely.
Serve with Avocado dipping sauce, above.
