Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups finely chopped cooked turkey
  • 2/3 cup leftover stuffing
  • 1/3 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 (14-ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce or about 1 1/3 cups leftover cranberry sauce
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 tablespooon lime juice
  • 1/2 jalapeno, finely diced
  • vegetable oil for frying

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, mix together turkey, stuffing, cream cheese, and 3 tablespoons cranberry sauce.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the remaining cranberry sauce with the lime juice and jalapeno. Refrigerate until needed.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of turkey filling in center of each wonton wrapper. Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel so they don't dry out. Moisten the edges of the wonton wrapper with water. Fold wrapper over the filling to form a triangle and press edges to seal. Repeat.
  • Pour about 1 to 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Before you drop the wontons in the oil, check to make sure edges are completely sealed. Fry wontons 4 at a time until golden brown on both sides. This will only take 30 to 60 seconds per side.
  • Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve with cranberry salsa.
