Habanero Cheddar Wontons with Asian Dipping Sauce

Sharing is caring!

Spreadable cheese had me stumped for a little while. I mean, WTF do you do with it?

Yes, I know you can spread it on crackers or put it in celery. But for a foodie like me, the regular ass way of doing things just isn’t very much fun. I need it to be adventurous, exciting, crazy.
Habanero DumplingsWell, I figured out WTF to do with it, and found my exciting.

Cabot’s Spreadable Habanero Cheese mixed with cream cheese – in a wonton. After I made these a few nights ago I had to fist pump myself because – 

  1. No one was awake during that moment, which was about 1:32 a.m. but me, so obviously there was no one to fist pump. I also had all of them to myself.
  2. These are so damn awesome I felt as if I needed to win an Academy Award.
  3. I managed to not eat them all.

And the sauce….OMG the sauce. Soy sauce, sesame oil, balsamic vinegar, honey and green onions. That is a luscious combo.

Yes, food can be sexy.

Very sexy.

Habanero Cheddar Wontons with Asian Dipping Sauce


    For the Wontons:
  • 4 oz. Cabot Habanero Cheese Spread
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 package wonton wrappers (you'll probably just use about half of them)
  • Canola oil
  • For the Dipping Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Green onions, chopped


  • Combine the cheeses and mix thoroughly.
  • Assemble wontons by lining each wrapper with water using your finger or pastry brush and filling each with about a teaspoon of cheese filling.
  • Bring oil to about 375 degrees and fry the wontons in batches without crowding, about 1 minute until golden brown.
  • Whisk the dipping sauce ingredients together and serve.
