The other night we ordered Chinese food and I almost single handedly downed an order of crab rangoons, my husband snagged a couple before I got to them… smart man.
I decided it was time to revisit this post… and whip up a big ol’ batch of this dip to satisfy my cheap Chinese food cravings!
I also decided it would be nice of me to include directions for wonton chips to top off the experience!
I love crab rangoons.
I realize they are probably not Chinese at all, at least judging from the waistlines of the cute little waitresses at the local Chinese Buffet, they don’t eat them.
I do though. There is something about cream cheese and crab mixed together and fried in a won ton that is just soooo delicious.
So when I happened upon a recipe for Crab Rangoon Dip I was beside myself. It promptly went on my meal plan for the week and I had to force myself not to make it sooner!
So here’s how you make this deliciousness
For the Dip
Grease a pan or casserole dish and pour it in.
Bake for 30 min at 350.
While its baking you can make your chips.
Cut your won ton wrappers in half diagonally. In a skillet heat about an inch of oil over med/high heat. After it’s heated up a few minutes lay your wrappers in the oil. They’ll bubble up a bit and start to turn golden brown around the edge after about 30 sec- 1min. Flip them and let the other side turn golden brown.
If they’re too dark they’ll be super crunchy so try to let them turn just golden.
Drain them on paper towels and sprinkle with salt.
Once everything is done serve it all up nice and warm and you’ll think you’ve died and gone to cheap Chinese food heaven!
What is your favorite take out dish?? I’d love to know I’m not the only one with this weakness!
