This is the perfect finger food for all you football fans as you watch your favorite teams! It's also a wonderful party appetizer or simply a delicious snack. And you know it's good, because I won a trip for four to Hawaii from the National Dairy Council, with this super simple, but knock-out delicious creation. Crispy wontons encase a creamy surprise-- and the dip is out of this world.
48 square wonton wrappers
2 lbs. Jalapeno Montreey Jack cheese, cubed
Vegetable oil for frying
1 Cup ricotta cheese
1 Cup apricot jam
1 Cup bottled roasted red peppers, sliced
1. Wrap each cube of cheese in a wonton wrapper, pinching with moistened fingers to seal seams. Heat an inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry wontons 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove with tongs and drain on paper towels.
2. In a blender, whirl ricotta cheese, apricot jam, and sliced peppers until smooth. Pour into serving bowl as a dip for cooked wontons. Makes 4 dozen.
