13 crazy good wonton recipes [be the most popular person at the next pot luck party]

Until recently, I never knew where you find wontons to cook. I really thought that you had to make your own dough. Really, I swear. But then I was passing along the frozen foods aisle (where the breakfast foods are) and you can find several varieties of wontons to make one of the incredible Wonton recipes.

Thanksgiving Leftover Wontons by Wisconsin Mommy

Who isn’t trying to come up with a great way to use all those Thanksgiving leftovers, right? What’s so fun about this recipe is that you just put a little of everything into a pocket of this wonton and fry them up. How many meals can you just mush together ALL the leftovers (sweet and savory) and come out with this. The tangy cranberries mixes so well with the savory turkey.

Jalapeno Mexican Wontons by Mom Dot

For anyone who loves that mix of sweet and spicy, you have to make these Mexican wontons. You can make it as hot or as mild as you prefer based on how much jalapeno you put in the recipe.

Crab Rangoon Dip with Wonton Chips by Love Bakes Good Cakes

So, if I’m being honest, I’m going to make this crab dip and scoop it into my mouth, whether I have a wonton chip or not. I am a crab lover through and through. Just know that you will have to spend a fair amount of time baking the chips, probably in batches so be sure to allow enough time for that.


This crab dip should be called crack dip it is so addictive!

Before you think I’d forget to include an Air Fryer recipe, I wanted to share this lovely recipe for wontons made in the Air Fryer. Okay, maybe it doesn’t hold the same appeal as those deep fried wontons, but it is still tasty and all that cheesy goodness counts for something, right?

Like pork dumplings? Then you’ll love these pork fried wontons. In fact in here recipe she declares “When I walk into a party with these, I’m the most popular person there.” I can believe it.

Crab Mushroom Wontons by Anyonita Nibbles


Love this mushroom wonton idea!

Mushrooms are full of vitamins and antioxidants and I love that it is basically the star of the show here. And since they are baked and not fried, it is better for you than some of the others on this list. Also, the recipe suggests imitation crab meat. I don’t recommend that at all. I’d go for the real deal as I don’t think we should be putting fake food into our bodies.

Avocado Crab Wontons by Savory Experiments


Crab rangoons on steroids is how I describe this delicious snack!

Imagine this as a crab rangoon on steroids. While the traditional rangoon is simply a crab mixture in a fried wonton, this recipe kicks it up a notch with the addition of  AVOCADO! Avocado goes so well with seafood. But match it with crab and cream cheese, and you are ready for a flavor explosion. I can’t wait for you to try this!

Jalapeno Popper Wontons by Salty Side Dish


I think one of the best things about this recipe is that it is only four ingredients. I can’t believe that something that tastes so good has so few ingredients. But you will need to spend a bit of time filling and folding the wontons for this recipe so don’t get too excited about how quickly it is going to be on the table. It is worth it though.

Though these wonton recipes take time, they are so worth it as they taste delicious. And, you’ll be the hit of the party when you serve these!
