WONTON GUAC BOMBS
The ultimate Cinco de Mayo food! The chip and the guac merge entirely in this crispy yet luscious dipping bomb of the gods.
Makes: 20 Wontons
2 large avocados, mashed (about 2 cups)
Juice from 2 limes (about ¼ cup)
½ cup finely chopped cilantro
2 TBSP curry powder
20 wonton skins
Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese cut into ¼-inch slices
Hot-and-sour dipping sauce
- In a medium bowl, combine the avocados, lime juice, cilantro, and curry powder with a large spoon. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- On a moist cutting board or baking sheet, lay out the wonton skins. Put one generous teaspoon of guacamole in one corner of the skin. Place a thin slice of cream cheese onto the heaped guacamole. Brush the edges of the skin with water. Fold over into a triangle and press the edges gently to seal. Repeat with the remaining skins.
- Pour the vegetable oil into a medium frying pan, about ½ inch deep, and heat. Place the triangles, four to six at a time (depending on room), into the oil and fry until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Place on a paper towel–lined plate to drain.
- Serve immediately with hot-and-sour dipping sauce on the side.
