My love for Mexican Street Corn runs deep, and these won tons are loaded with a creamy filling of sweet corn, spicy jalapenos, fresh cilantro, and lime zest all wrapped up in a crispy won ton package. You won't be able to eat just one!
Mexican Street Corn Won Tons
6 cups vegetable oil
3 ounces room temperature cream cheese
½ cup canned Mexi-corn
2 Tablespoons diced fresh jalapeno
½ cup crumbled queso fresco cheese
1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon garlic salt
¼ cup chopped cilantro, divided
In an electric fryer or large high sided skillet fitted with a candy thermometer, bring the oil up to 375 degrees over medium high heat.
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the cream cheese, Mexi-corn, jalapeno, queso fresco cheese, mayonnaise, lime zest, chili powder and ¾ of the cilantro until evenly mixed.
Lay a won ton wrapper on a flat surface with one of the corners pointing towards you. Use your finger and moisten the outer edges of a wonton wrapper with water. Place about 2 teaspoons of the corn mixture in the center. Fold the won ton in half, sealing the top and bottom points together, then bring the two side corners together, pressing to seal completely. Place on a large cookie sheet, covered with a clean kitchen towel and repeat with remaining wrappers.
Working in batches, fry the wontons for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to drain on a cooling rack placed in a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with remaining cilantro and serve immediately.
