How to fold wonton wrappers
Wonton wrappers are a fun and simple appetizer and you can use them in a million ways. For these mini fried taco pizza pockets, simply place a bit of filling on each square, then fold into a triangle, and fry. Easy peasy!
Pizza Pocket Fillings
These little cuties are so simple to make. And you can fill them with just about anything you like: green chilis or jalapeños, shredded chicken, veggies, or different types of cheese. For this recipe I used:
- Wonton wrappers
- Shredded cheese
- Ground beef
- Taco Seasoning
- Sour cream and cilantro for dipping
Can you make them ahead of time?
These are best served as soon as they are cooked so that the wontons are nice and crispy. You can fill and fold them a few hours ahead of time so you just have to fry and serve.
If you do have leftovers, they will keep well for a day or two in the fridge, and should be reheated quickly at a high temperature in the oven so that they get crispy again.
Recipe Notes and Tips
- Don’t overfill the wonton wrappers, they should fold over easily so that the filling doesn’t escape.
- Add enough oil to your pot to fully cover the taco pizza pockets, otherwise they can stick to the bottom of the pan.
- Make sure your oil is hot before frying.
- Cook in batches so that the temperature of the oil doesn’t drop.
Cook up a batch of these for your next get-together and watch them disappear! They are so fun to make, too. Enjoy this time in the kitchen and happy eating!
