Total time: 35 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Prep time: 15 minutes
Yields: 5 servings
Number of ingredients: 11
  • 15-25 wonton wrappers
  • 2-3 cups canola or vegetable oil
  • 1-1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • 1 can black olives
  • 1-2 jalapeños fresh or pickled
  • 2-3 tablespoons capers
  • 3/4 cup precooked chicken or sausage

  • Cilantro or basil optional
How to cook:
  1. Cut the wonton wrappers into smaller chip-sized triangles or strips.
  2. Add an inch of oil in a pot or pan and heat on medium heat. The oil should be hot enough that the wonton wrappers begin to bubble and slightly curl within 2-3 seconds of adding them to the pan.
  3. Add wonton wrappers 2-3 at a time. Fry the wrappers 10-30 seconds each side until they just start to turn brown.
  4. Take the wrappers out with tongs or a metal fork or strainer and place on a plate with a few paper towels on it.
  5. Chop the olives and jalapeños in thin slices or chunks.
  6. Spread the chips in a thin layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle the cheese, olives, jalapeños, chopped chicken or sausage.
  7. Bake the chips at 325°F for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  8. Chop the tomatoes and cilantro into small chunks.
  9. Add the tomatoes, cilantro, capers, and any other cold ingredients you'd like on top. Pour Alfredo sauce over top and serve.

Increase the heat to medium and whisk in the half-and-half little by little. Cook until thickened, about 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; add 2 cups of the grated Parmesan.
