24 wontons


  • 1 cup cubed cooked chicken

  • ½ cup Borden® Cheddar and Monterey Jack Shreds

  • ½ cup jalapeno-flavored cream cheese, softened

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 24 square wonton wrappers

  • Salsa, for serving

  • Soy sauce for dipping


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place cooked chicken cubes in a food processor. Pulse until chicken resembles crumbs. Add shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese and jalapeno cream cheese. Pulse 2 or 3 times until mixed. If mixture appears dry, add more cream cheese, 1 tablespoon at a time.

  3. Place a heaping teaspoon of chicken-cheese mixture on the bottom corner of a wonton wrapper. Leave a 1/2 inch border around wonton. Brush the edges with water and fold over opposite corner to form a triangle. Press to seal edges. Repeat for all wontons.

  4. Place wontons on prepared baking sheet. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Turn; lightly spray other side of wontons with cooking spray.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until the edges turn brown, 8 or 9 minutes.

  6. Serve warm with salsa or soy sauce.
