 Ingredients  
1    scallion, minced
1  Tbsp  vegetable oil
2  Tbsp  fresh lime juice
1/4  cup (scant)  sundried tomatoes (packed in oil), chopped
1/4  cup (loosely packed)  cilantro, finely chopped
1/4  tsp  salt
1/8  tsp  black pepper
3  med  avocados, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2" cubes
12    won ton wrappers
    oil for deep frying

 
 
 Instructions  
Saute scallion in 1 Tablespoon oil in a small saucepan over medium heat until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook one minute more. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.

In medium bowl combine avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. Add scallions and garlic. Toss to combine.

Heat one inch vegetable oil in a heavy skillet to 375 degrees.

For each wrapper, place one teaspoon of avocado mixture in center of won ton wrapper. Moisten the outside edges of the wrapper by dipping your finger in water and running it around the edge. Fold wrapper in half to form a triangle by bringing two opposite points together. Crimp edges securely by pinching firmly with fingers to seal all edges.

Deep fry, two or three at a time, until golden brown, turning once. Cook approximately one minute on each side. Drain on paper towels.

Serve immediately with Honey Lime Dipping Sauce.

Challenger's statement:

These were inspired by the Avocado Egg Rolls at The Cheesecake Factory. I don't know how close I got, but even my picky DH liked them.

 Substitutions  
Scallion may be substituted with 1/4 of a red or purple onion.

Won Ton wrappers may be substituted with UNCOOKED flour tortillas for an egg-free option. I made them this way successfully, by cutting the tortillas into quarters with a pizza cutter, and crimping the edges the same as the Won Ton wrappers. These are available in the refrigerator section of Costco in Southern California. I don't know about the availability in other areas.

Use dairy and sesame free ingredients as needed. Commercial wonton wrappers generally contain egg, soy and corn ingredients.
