Chinese style appetizers are always popular at parties and these crunchy pork wontons are easy party appetizers, which your guests will love. A tasty mixture of pork, green onion, and soy sauce is enclosed inside each wonton and then they are deep fried. These pork wontons are just as authentic as anything you would get in a Chinese restaurant and homemade wontons are even nicer than the restaurant ones.
You can make these pork wonton appetizers in advance if you wanted to, and then fry them when you guests arrive. A lot of hot appetizer recipes can be make ahead appetizers. Wontons are hot and crunchy and they make really good appetizers because they are filling but not too filling to detract from the main meal.
When you are deep frying these pork wontons, make sure the oil heats back up to 375 degrees F after each back, before you add more wontons. If the temperature is too low, the wontons will be soggy instead of crispy. Cool, creamy ranch dressing makes the ideal dip for these pork wontons. Alternatively you could serve sweet chili sauce as a dip. A thick dipping sauce is best, since it is less messy and it will cling to the wontons better.

Serve these with a dipping sauce, like the chili sauce shown in the picture, or with a ranch dressing as suggested in the recipe. You could even offer both kinds of dips since some people will prefer one while others like the other more. The wontons may be served on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce if you like, and perhaps some sliced tomatoes to add even more color.
