Stuffed Mac and Cheese Nacho Dumplings

Stuffed Mac and Cheese Nacho Dumplings
Staff Writer


Nothing beats a crunchy tortilla chip topped with melted cheese and all of the other accoutrements of nachos — except for when the "nachos" are actually wonton wrappers, and they're filled with mac and cheese. Did we mention there are Doritos in this recipe?


Fill a large skillet with about 2 inches of canola oil and heat to 350 degrees. 

Lay an egg roll or wonton wrapper out on a work surface and fill with desired fillings such as the mac and cheese, bacon, chili, red beans, rice, guacamole, and jalapeños. Brush the edges of each wrapper with a little bit of water and then roll or fold over to seal. If you're using an egg roll wrapper, roll it like a burrito by folding in the edges before sealing. For the wonton wrappers, fold the wrapper in half to form a triangle and them crimp the edges with a fork to seal them. Keep the nachos under a wet paper towel while you are filling the rest. 

Fry the nachos in the hot oil and cook for 5-6 minutes for the egg roll wrappers, and 2-3 minutes for the wontons. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate and season with the crushed Doritos. Layer the nachos in a cast-iron pan and cover with the Cheddar cheese. Bake under a broiler until the cheese melts, remove, and garnish with sour cream, Sriracha, and leftover fillings.
