Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn kernals
  • 1/4 cup canned black beans, drained
  • 5 oz (1 cup) chicken, shredded
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp (1/2 pkg) dry ranch dressing
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • canola or vegetable oil for frying

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and salt and saute for 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and cook for 5 more minutes. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add corn, beans, and chicken and stir to combine. Move the chicken mixture to a bowl and season with pepper, then stir in cheese and dry ranch dressing. Begin heating about 1/2 inch of canola or vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, scoop 1 teaspoon of chicken mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper. Rub some water on two sides of the wrapper, then fold over to firmly seal, forming a triangle, and gently press out any extra air pockets. When the oil is hot, place 6 wontons at a time into oil. Cook about 1 minute per side until golden and crispy.
