Ingredients

For the wontons

  • 4  Ounces  Cabot Habanero Cheese Spread
  • 4  Ounces  cream cheese, at room temperature
  • package wonton wrappers (you'll probably just use about half of them)
  • Canola oil

For the dipping sauce

  • 2  Tablespoons  soy sauce
  • 1  Teaspoon  balsamic vinegar
  • 1  Teaspoon  sesame oil
  • 1  Teaspoon  honey
  • Green onions, chopped

Directions

For the wontons

Combine the cheeses and mix thoroughly.  Assemble wontons by lining each wrapper with water using your finger or pastry brush and filling each with about a teaspoon of cheese filling.  Bring oil to about 375 degrees and fry the wontons in batches without crowding, about 1 minute until golden brown.

For the dipping sauce

Whisk the dipping sauce ingredients together and serve.

Habanero Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Habanero Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
