Cream Cheese Wontons

These wontons are really easy and very tasty. You can find wonton wrappers in the produce section of your local grocery store. These are an appetizer, but my huband and I can eat them like a meal. We are BAD!

18 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened

1 C. Monterey jack cheese, shredded

1 tbs. fresh minced garlic (or more. I didn't really measure out the garlic. My husband and I are garlic freaks, so the more is better for us.)

5 green onions, diced (this is how many I used. You can use as much as you like!)

Black pepper to taste

1 16 oz. package wonton wrappers

Vegetable oil for frying

Mix cream cheese, Monterey jack cheese, garlic, green onions, and black pepper in a small bowl.

Spoon about one tablespoon of the mixture into a wonton wrapper.

With damp fingers, fold the wonton wrapper in half to make a triangle. Make sure that all edges are sealed.

Quickly fry wontons in vegetable oil until golden brown.

I used my Fry Daddy and it made it a quick job.
DO NOT put ALL the wontons together when frying them. Just fry about 7-10 at one time.
