4th of July Wonton Poppers

I usually make these in the summer for the 4th of July for my family. They are so addictive. The sweet from the plum jam and the spicy from the chilies and jalapenos are a great combination. Just a warning...You will need to make lots as you and your guests will want "just one more" over and over again!

Mexican Cheese Wonton's

1 package wonton wrappers
8 ounces cream cheese
2 cups grated Monterey Jack Cheese
4 ounce can chopped green chilies
1 teaspoon chopped pickled jalapenos
Red Plum Jam

Mix together cream cheese, jack cheese, chilies and jalapenos. This should be a thick spreading consistency. Place filling into a quart size zip-lock bag. Snip one bottom corner off the bag so you can pipe the filling. Pipe about 1 teaspoon worth of filling about 1 inch from the edge of each wonton wrapper. Moisten edges to help seal the filling in when wrapping. The water will help create a glue. Roll up folding edges to center and then roll. Freeze on paper towel lined plate. Fry in hot oil for about 45 seconds or until golden brown. Serve with Red Plum Jam that you have warmed in the microwave to make a dipping sauce.
