Jalapeno Cream Cheese Wontons

I've never made wontons before, I've been worried I couldn't make them properly, that they would open up while frying and turn into a disaster, but they were incredibly easy to make, and as long as the edges of the wonton wrapper was sealed with water, we had no problems. Very easy and delicious!

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, diced
20 square wonton wrappers
oil for deep frying

In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and jalapeno.

Place about a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of each wrapper.

Moisten your fingertip in the bowl of water and trace the edges of the wonton wrappers. Follow directions on the package for desired shapes.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. When hot, fry the wontons a few at a time until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with all of the wontons.
