Fried Guacamole Wontons

Guacamole and kale bites wrapped in wontons and FRIED, baby.

Ingredients

1
large avocado
2
tablespoons red onion, minced
2
tablespoons kale, finely chopped
2
tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
3
cherry tomatoes, quartered
Juice from half a lime
1
pinch of salt and pepper
1
egg
20
wontons (or more if your guacamole mix is larger)
40
4-inch chives (or more because some will likely break during tying)
4
cups vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

  • 1 In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Add the red onion, kale, cilantro, tomatoes, lime juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir and mash to combine and make guacamole.
  • 2 Layer the wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Beat the egg (creating a wash), and brush a circle in the center of each wrapper with a little wash.
  • 3 Dollop a teaspoon or so of guacamole in the center of each wonton, then roll it up, pinching the edges. Tie each end with a chive. Don't tie too tight or the chive will break.
  • 4 In the meantime, heat the oil until a wooden stick sizzles when you dip into it. That's when you know the oil is ready. Gently drop 5 at a time into the oil and fry until golden brown all over. Remove those and continue to fry the remaining wontons in batches until all are cooked and golden. Drain on paper towels.
  • 5 Serve immediately.

Fried wontons holding a center of guacamole and kale. You'll want 'em all.

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Kale-kissed gaucamole wrapped in wontons and fried? Where do I sign?

Okay, this incredible appetizer is such an oxymoron. The happiest oxymoron ever. We've got guacamole with kale in it. But then you wrap it all in wontons and deep fry them. It's called balance. 

It's just like me listening to NPR everyday and then watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians on the weekends. Balance. 

Don't roll your eyes. 

The magical Joy created these little suckers a while back, but I tweaked them juuuust a tad by adding kale to the mix, and using chives as the strings. They're just cute; I couldn't stand not to make them. 

And now it's your turn. BALANCE.

And then dip about 45 chips in it for taste testing purposes. Ahem.

This part takes a while, but if you've got some good jams going, you won't mind. You'll wipe a little egg wash inside each wonton wrapper, then in goes a little dollop of guac. Then you'll roll it up and pinch the sides. Photos help. It's hard to explain, man!

*Sorry I said jams.

Then take the chives and tie the ends, just like little packages.

This is after they're fried! Obviously. I always get scared to photograph the frying because hot oil is the devil. And he stings. 

But look how fun they are! Don't even think you'll have just one.

But it's okay because, balance. 

Eat the whole tray.

 

No, she's not kidding, eat them all. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.

Tips  

The kale adds an earthiness to the guacamole. If it's not your thing, feel free to leave it out.
