Crab Rangoon Dip with Baked Wonton Chips

One of my favorite appetizers, is Crab Rangoon and it is almost always on my order  when we go out to eat Chinese food.  This dip is amazing, and a perfect way to satisfy the "Crab Rangoon Cravings" ha ha, but it is right from your own kitchen.  It is a quick and easy recipe, with no frying at all, because the Won Tons are baked instead of fried, and they take only 5 minutes to bake.  The dip is loaded with crab meat, cream cheese, Mozzarella, and is topped with Chili sauce and green onions, and let me tell you, that Chili sauce on the top is so good, you'll be going back for more.

2  8oz packages of Cream Cheese, softened
1 12 oz package Crab Meat (canned crab meat or imitation crab meat can be used as well).
1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 small stick Celery minced
3 Green Onions, finely chopped (reserve 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon dried Minced Onion
Chili Sauce
Baked Wontons

1 Package Wonton Wrappers
Cooking Spray

  4. Spray a medium/small baking dish with cooking spray.
  5. Spread mixture into the baking dish.

Instructions for Baked Wonton Crackers

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  4. Place each diagonal onto the cookie sheet, leaving a slight amount of space between them. 
  5. Spray the top of them with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Bake for 4-5 minutes, keeping a close eye on them, because they can burn quickly.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, crab meat, Mozzarella, minced celery, all but 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions, soy sauce and dried onion.
Mix together until well combined. 
Spread  into a prepared baking dish and bake 25 -30 minutes.

In the meantime, make the Wonton Chips as follows: 
Cut Wontons in half diagonally.

Place on a prepared cookie sheet, spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 4-5 minutes in 375 degree oven, watching carefully, because they burn quickly.
