Scale

Ingredients

For the wontons: 

  • 14 wonton wrappers
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup diced roma tomato
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp lime zest
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

For the dipping sauce: 

  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp lime zest
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scoop the avocado out of the skins, discarding the pits, and place in a small mixing bowl.  Add the tomato, onion, lime juice, zest, cilantro and salt.  Mix until well combined, leaving small chunks of avocado in the mixture.
  3. Add some cold water to a ramekin or small bowl.  Working with one wonton wrapper at a time, scoop bout a tablespoon of the avocado mixture into the center of the wonton wrapper.  Using your finger, run water along the edge of the wrapper that’s facing up.  Fold the wrapper so the corners meet, making a triangle shape.  Press edges together.  Place the wonton on the baking sheet and continue to repeat the process until all of the avocado mixture has been used.  You should end up wth 12 – 14 wontons.
  4. Spray the wontons with olive or avocado oil and bake for 8 minutes.  After 8 minutes remove from the oven and carefully flip the wontons over.  Bake for an additional 7-8 minutes until the edges are a dark golden brown.  Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  5. While the wontons are cooking mix the yogurt, zest, cilantro, cumin, lime juice and salt in a small bowl.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  6. Serve the wontons warm or refrigerate until ready to eat.  If refrigerating reheat for 5-10 minutes in a 250°F oven.
