Steamed Jalapeno Pork Wontons Feature | Inspiration KitchenThis month’s Mystery Dish was no different – except that it was an amazing list of ingredients that I could hardly wait to get my hands on!

I was {thisclose} to making a dessert, but you know me…I saw the jalapenos and I got stars in my eyes and started designing a savory recipe.


Steamed Jalapeno Pork Wontons Feature | Inspiration KitchenLet me just say, this recipe made WAY over 24 wontons.  But…, I got tired at 24…

So, just know that you can get least two times the number of wontons than I did out of this recipe.

I know you can do it, you little wonton maker, you!  🙂  Me?  Not so much.  Me tired.

Steamed Jalapeno Pork Wontons | Inspiration Kitchen-2This is some jalapeno goodness wrapped up in paper thin wonton wrappers, then tossed in a hot skillet for 1 minute then splashed with some wah-wah, slam on the lid and instant steamy goodness will come out of that pot.

Don’t be fooled.  Easy, peasy.

      Thanks for the pin Marcie! I’ve made wontons several times, but let me tell you – be ready to settle in for a tedious process! I get tired about half way through. Hahaha! Have a great weekend! xoxo

      Thank you Juliana! I have to admit – I got tired really quick. But I couldn’t give up because I know my readers want to make them, and I’m sure making 6 wontons wouldn’t be enough! Haha!

      You’ll love them Marye – but just know they take a lot of time! They are kind of tedious to make – so put on a good TV show and start wrapping! Haha! Have a great weekend!

    Hahaha as much as I love wontons, I totally get lazy after making only a few too! My mom used to get us to help her wrap them and I absolutely dreaded it after 5 lol. Yours look absolutely mouthwatering! Of course I love the spicy jalapeno in here and that chili peanut sauce sounds perfect! I could easily devour all 24 in one sitting 🙂
