Beer Cheese Wontons


This recipe has nothing to do with Thanksgiving.

I love Thanksgiving, really. It’s my favorite holiday, due in no small part to the fact that it is a day devoted to a gluttonous love of food. And no presents are exchanged. I’m not sure what it is about those present exchanging holidays that makes me nervous. I’ve never been a girl who is comfortable with receiving gifts. I love to give them, completely love it. But having someone watch me open a gift, I can’t help but feel completely self conscious about my reaction which I assume to be sub-par.

I know. If you haven’t noticed, I tend to over think things.

Which makes my love for Thanksgiving FAR exceed any feelings I have for Christmas. I get to make significantly more food than will ever be consumed, and no one will be attempting to decipher my reaction as I peel away the wrapping of a hand selected present.

Starting sometime in the next 36 hours, I will start preparations for the following dishes: This turkey, These rolls, this Mac n Cheese, something similar to this pie, and this pie too. As well as about 6 other dishes that will create a disgusting surplus of food.


And then, we will all be back to making football food, like portable beer cheese dip.



Beer Cheese Wontons


  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbs corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup beer
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 2 tbs green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  1. In a food processor combine the first 9 ingredients (everything except the wonton wrappers, green onions and the oil), process until well combined.
  2. One at a time, place the wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Using your fingers or a pastry brush, wet the edges or the wrappers with water.
  3. Place about 1 tbs of filling in the center of the wrapper. Sprinkle green onions on top (about 1/4 tsp).
  4. Fold wrapper over to create a triangle, press the edges together until very well sealed. Brush the bottom of the triangle with water and fold the corners into the center and press into shape.
  5. Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat until hot but not smoking. Adjust heat to make sure it does not get to the smoking point, or the wontons will burn.
  6. Carefully add wontons to the hot oil, cooking until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
  7. Serve immediately, wontons will get soggy if they sit.

cream cheese wontons were the things that were gobbled first at Chinese restaurants! I need to make them at home!

I love cooking with beer almost as much as I love cooking with wine! It adds such a wonderful depth of flavor. I think I’ll make these one day during one of my husband’s football watching marathons. He’ll love them!

Yes. I totally agree with your reasons as to why Thanksgiving is better than Christmas. And I’ll eat these wontons every day!

Yay! These sound great! I was kind of surprised to see that they don’t contain cheddar cheese, though. I’m going to stick some in there.


Jackie November 20, 2012 um 5:55 pm

I completely approve of that 🙂

Oh, these are just pure awesome. They are so cute and look so insanely good.

And I’m with you on the self-conscious-gift-receiving thing. I had major anxiety over my wedding and baby showers!

I just died 14 glorious deaths looking at these.

Oh, yum! We’re big football-watchers on Sundays here, so I"m always looking for good football-snackin' foods. These look fantastic for that!
