Archive for the ‘Wonton Chips With Rangoon Dip’ Category

My hubby and I decided that we are going to try a new appetizer, hor devours or snack each Sunday during football.  We love trying new things and football games are a great excuse to have those fun little snacks you may not normally have.

Wonton Chips With Rangoon Dip

My hubby and I LOVE Chinese food!  LOVE IT!  Our idea of a perfect date is to get Chinese and bring it back home to watch tv (Seriously love the Lilly Allen Chinese song just because of that line!).  Our favorite Chinese food is rangoon wontons so when I saw this recipe for rangoon dip with wonton chips I thought, “Oh my gosh I must eat that now!”  Well, I didn’t exactly whip it up that moment, but we did make it yesterday for this weeks football snack and we loved it!  As is usual I tweaked the recipe a bit because there was a rangoon recipe on the wonton package also and I kind of picked things from each recipe that looked good and combined them to make what you see above.  If you like rangoon wontons you’ve got to try this…it’s delic!


1 pkg wonton wraps

8 oz of softened cream cheese

1/3 C sour cream

1 garlic clove, minced

2 green onions, minced

4 oz finely chopped crab meat (I used imitation)

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp sugar

1 tsp soy sauce

Canola oil for frying


Preheat oven to 400° and cut wonton wraps in half.

In medium sized mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and sour cream.  When well blended add garlic clove, onions, crab meat, garlic powder, sugar and soy sauce.  Mix again until throughly blended.  Pour into oven safe dish and bake for 8-10 mins.

While rangoon dip is baking fill frying pan with about 1 inch of canola oil and warm over medium heat frying wonton strips until they reach a nice golden brown.  (You can also fry them in a deep fryer or for a healthy alternative bake on a cookie sheet that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray at 375° for 5-8 mins or until lightly browned and crispy.)  Remove from grease and put on a paper towel lined plate to help remove excess grease, cool and eat with warm rangoon dip.
