Looking for a way to infuse green chile into Asian food? Well, here is a spectacular way to make wontons, using world famous New Mexico chile.
- 4 c Monterey Jack cheese; shred
- 6 oz Green chiles; diced (a bout 2/3 cup)
- 6 oz white onion (diced very finely)
- 1 lb Frozen wonton skins; thawed
- 1/2 large avocado
- 1 Peanut oil
Combine cheese, chiles, onion, avocado; stir well. Working with one wonton skin at a time, spoon about 1 1/2 tsp. cheese mixture in center of each wonton. Moisten edges of wonton lightly with water. Fold wonton in half to form a triangle, pressing edges together to seal. Repeat procedure with remaining wonton skins and the remaining mixture of ingredients. Chill 20 min. Fry wontons in a small amount of hot oil (375) until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt. Serve with guacamole or chile con queso.
