Wonton Nachos Recipe: Easy & Delicious Twist On Nachos

These wonton nachos are a tasty twist on classic nachos that are worth trying and can be customized with your favorite toppings.  They are perfect for any occasion, and everyone will love them. Plus, wonton nachos are so easy to make that you can whip them up in no time. 

Making nachos is a great snack, appetizer, or even dinner option. The combinations of flavors, textures, and colors are endless. To make wonton nachos all you need is some wonton wrappers, oil for frying, and your favorite toppings.

Fried Wonton Chips

wonton wrappers

Wonton Wrappers are the key to this recipe and can be found in most grocery stores. Choose your favorite variety and make sure to grab enough for the number of wonton chips you want to make. You Will be cutting the wrappers in half to create triangle-style chips. Wontons make excellent light and crispy chips that bring a whole new experience to these nachos.

Sausage

sausage

Choose your favorite sausage such as breakfast, Italian, or chorizo to use in this recipe. I am using Jimmy Dean pork sausage for this recipe. The key is to sauté the sausage until it’s cooked through and lightly browned for a delicious flavor and texture. If you want a different protein source, pepperoni, salami, ground chicken, and ground beef are also great options.

Cheese

cheese

You can use any cheese you prefer for these nachos. I am using a Mexican blend cheese but some other great options would be cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend of both for the cheese. The key is to make sure that it’s grated so that it will melt quickly and evenly when baked on the wonton chips.

Toppings

jalapenos

Once your sausage and cheese are ready to go, it’s time for the toppings. On these nachos, I am using jalapenos, pepperoncini, olives, and sour cream to top it off. Other good topping ideas would be fresh tomatoes, green onion, salsa, lettuce, onions, guacamole, and some chopped cilantro

What Tools You Will Need

Directions

Step 1

Preheat your frying pan to medium heat and brown your sausage, set aside. Place your wonton wrappers on a cutting board, cut in half diagonally to form wonton triangles and set them aside. Prepare the rest of your toppings.

Step 2

Add cooking oil to a frying pan just deep enough to place your wontons in. Heat oil over medium heat. Begin frying your wontons in batches a few wontons at a time until they are golden brown. Remove the fried wonton chips and place all the wontons on a paper towel or drying rack to remove any excess oil.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lay out wonton chips on a baking sheet in an even layer. Add 1/3 of your cheese to the chips. Lay the second half of your chips on top of the first layer and add another 1/3 of your cheese on top.

Step 4

Add the browned sausage, toppings, and the last 1/3 of your cheese on your nachos evenly. Place in preheated oven for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Step 5

Once your nachos are out of the oven top them off with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, or any other toppings of your choosing. 

Step 6

Serve & Enjoy!

Notes

  • Place your chips on a paper towel or wire rack for 5 minutes to allow any excess oil to be removed.
  • Add any condiment-style toppings to your nachos after they come out of the oven, such as guacamole, sour cream, and salsa.
  • Green onion, red onions, fresh cilantro, and chives are all great additional toppings.

FAQ

Can I make wonton nachos in advance?

Yes, you can make the wonton chips up to 24 hours in advance and store them in an airtight container until ready to use. Then just assemble the nachos right before baking.

Can I use different toppings?

Absolutely! This is just one way of making these nachos but feel free to get creative with your nachos and assemble the nachos with any of your favorite toppings you like.

What is the difference between tortilla and wonton chips?

Wonton chips are lighter and crispier than traditional tortilla chips due to their thinner consistency. They are also slightly sweeter, making them the perfect choice for nachos.

Do I Have To Fry My Wonton Chips?

No, you don’t have to fry the wonton chips. Instead of frying them, you can bake them in the oven at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. If you bake them they will be denser and not as light as fried wonton chips.

What Are Wonton Nachos?

Wonton Nachos are a delicious twist on traditional nachos made with wonton wrappers instead of tortilla chips. They’re crispy, light and airy, and perfect for any occasion!

What Meats Work Best With Wonton Nachos?

Any meat you like in nachos works great with wonton chips. Some of my favorite meats are sausage, pepperoni, salami, and ground beef. You can also use vegetarian options such as black beans or crumbled tofu if you prefer.

Can I Make Wonton Nachos Vegetarian?

Absolutely! Leave out the meat and opt for more vegetable toppings such as tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, olives, lettuce, and cilantro. You can also add vegan cheese or crumbled tofu instead of regular cheese.
